Background

The UNHCR (Office of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees) exists to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. Its mandate is to lead and co-ordinate international aid to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide.

The largest refugee camp in the world is Dadaab, in Kenya, with some 262,000 displaced persons, mostly from Somalia though there are other refugees from Sudan, Uganda and Congo.

Increased violence in Somalia has led to as many as 1,000 new refugees arriving per day – at a time when heavy flooding has affected as many as 100,000 people.
