(MissionNewswire) Europe is experiencing a maritime refugee crisis of historic proportions, according to UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency. Already in 2015, more than 300,000 refugees and migrants have crossed the Mediterranean Sea on their way to Europe. At the end of 2014, 59.5 million people worldwide, the highest level on record, were forcibly displaced as a result of persecution, conflict and human rights violations and of those documented, 19.5 million were refugees.
(MissionNewswire) The U.N World Food Programme made an announcement in June that due to a shortfall in donor funding it plans to cut food rations for half a million refugees living in camps in northern Kenya, according to a recent Thomas Reuters Foundation article. Food rations will be cut by close to a third for the primarily Somali and South Sudanese refugees at the Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps. Also affected are the more than one thousand refugees participating in Salesian programs at the Kakuma refugee camp.
