Kenya Refugee Program

Kenya hosts approximately 450,000 registered refugees, mainly from Somalia and South Sudan in Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps and also in Kalobeyei integrated settlement. Since the outbreak of conflict in South Sudan in mid-December 2013, more than 100,000 South Sudanese refugees have entered the country. Joint United Nations, donor and Government of Kenya assessment missions report that refugees depend on international assistance for survival.

USAID’s Food for Peace (FFP) program supports refugees living in the Dadaab and Kakuma camps, and in the Kalobeyei settlement and host communities, through direct food distributions, education on maternal and child health, and livelihoods training. FFP also supports World Food Program’s (WFP) refugee operations by providing cash transfers and support for local procurement of specialized nutrition products.
