Due to the massive influx of new #refugees, there are severe delays in #refugee registration in #Dadaab. This, and a lack of space within the overcrowded camp, has resulted in many new arrivals, mainly women and their children, forced to set up make-shift shelters outside the camps. These make-shift areas leave women and children exposed to the risk of #violence, rape, robbery and the elements, including wildlife.
