Kakuma refugee camp located at the heart of Turkana, Kenya, hosts more than 181 thousand refugees from 21 nationalities. Due to high influx of South Sudanese this prolonged camp is suffering from congestion and limited humanitarian aid at all times. To respond, Good Neighbors International (GNI) launched its assistance program in Kakuma last year, and has been providing safe shelters to protracted refugees in Kakuma 1.
As one of the oldest protracted refugee situations in the world, Kakuma refugee camp is keeping its history for 24 years with 180,000 population of 21 nationalities.
In addition, with high influx of South Sudanese refugees caused by the ongoing domestic conflict since December 2013, Kakuma refugee camp has already exceeded its capacity to accommodate. And this substantial numbers of new arrivals lead insufficient humanitarian assistance in the camp across sectors to more impoverished lives of refugees.
