Full food rations to be reinstated for refugees in Kenya

30 December 2014

Full food rations for nearly 500,000 people in two refugee camps in Kenya will be resumed in January, thanks to a donation of US$45 million.

That announcement was made on Tuesday by the World Food Programme (WFP) which distributes food twice a month to the refugees in Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps in northern Kenya.

The agency was forced to reduce the size of their rations by half in November due to insufficient funding.

To find out more about this Derrick Mbatha spoke on the line to Nairobi with WFP’s Challiss McDonough.
