Kenya Refugee Program

Speeches Shim

Kenya hosts approximately 425,000 registered refugees—primarily from Somalia and South Sudan—in the Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps and the Kalobeyei Integrated Settlement, where they rely almost entirely on international humanitarian assistance for their survival and well-being.  USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID/BHA) supports these refugee populations and their host communities with direct food distributions, education on maternal and child health, school feeding and livelihoods training. USAID/BHA also supports the UN World Food Program’s (WFP) refugee operations in the camps by providing cash transfers and support for local procurement of specialized nutrition products.
