A woman holds her infant while she waits for food distribution at the MSF clinic. MSF staff report that refugees who have risked everything to escape the violence in Somalia are considering returning there rather than staying in the camps. Aid agencies are not able to meet the immense and rapidly growing needs of this war-weary population. MSF calls upon UNHCR, international donors, and the Kenyan government to urgently address the lack of assistance and protection provided to arriving refugees, and the dire living conditions in the camps.
