400,000 refugees in Kenya – Daily Nation

The 434,000 refugees in Kakuma, Dadaab and the new Kalobeyei camps are also at the risk of starvation from February 2017 unless the UN body receives more funding.WFP Country Director for Kenya Annalisa Conte on Tuesday appealed for close to $14 million in emergency funding to avert the looming crisis.Usually WFP provides the refugees with a food basket containing cereals, pulses, vegetable oil, and nutrient-enriched flour.While the amounts disbursed to refugees have not been slashed, Ms Conte said, WFP is expected to run out of cash by the end of January.Apart from the basic food rations, WFP also provides fortified foods to young children, pregnant women and nursing mothers, to stave off malnutrition.
