Upon arrival, children realize they have finally reached a safe place in the #Dadaab#refugee camps in #Kenya. Children and families receive food and school supplies provided by @CARE at the reception centers.
#Refugee daily arrivals are now exceeding 1,500 people. An estimated 37,000 #refugees have passed through reception and are still waiting for registration so they can receive food daily. 65,000 children in #EastAfrica are affected by severe #malnutrition, while 315,000 children are affected by acute #malnutrition. Compared to last year, the number of children affected by #malnutrition has increased by an alarming 60% from 2010, and is expected to rise if current trends are not addressed.
