The Estonian Foreign Ministry is donating 800,000 kroons to ease the situation of Kenya's internally displaced persons (IDPs).

Since the presidential election that occurred on 27 December of last year, ethnic conflicts have exploded in Kenya. Over a thousand people have died as a result of the violence, and hundreds of thousands have fled their homes.

'Hundreds of IDP camps have formed in the western part of Kenya, and they are in dire need of humanitarian aid and protection,' said Foreign Minister Urmas Paet.
