Dadaab Refugee Camp: Experience it for yourself

BY 30 HOUR FAMINE TEAM

Horn of Africa Famine Update

Watch this video for a glimpse into Kenya’s Dadaab Refugee Camp. There are no special effects, no music, no editing. Just raw footage from the world’s largest refugee camp. We invite you to experience—as best as you can thousands of miles away—what life is currently like for the 500,000 refugees in Dadaab. Take a walk in their shoes. See the children, the filth, the tents and the barren landscape. Experience the place hundreds of thousands call ‘home.’
