UNFPA chief focuses on needs of women and girls in Dadaab
So far, almost twelve and a half million people have been affected by severe drought in the Horn of Africa.
In Somalia, the drought resulted in nearly four million internally displaced people.
The world’s largest refugee camp, Dadaab, in neighboring Kenya, has seen its population soar to close to 500,000.
To see how the needs of women are being affected by this crisis, the head of the UN Population Fund, Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, recently visited Dadaab refugee camp. I asked him what conditions stood out most for him.
