Food for Peace Kenya Refugee Program

Kenya hosts approximately 442,000 registered refugees, mainly from Somalia and South Sudan, in the Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps. Since the outbreak of conflict in South Sudan in mid-December 2013, more than 98,500 additional South Sudanese refugees have entered the country. Joint United Nations, donor and Government of Kenya assessment missions report that most of these refugees depend on international assistance for survival.

USAID Food for Peace (FFP) focuses its efforts on improving food and nutrition security for the most vulnerable populations in Kenya by providing life-saving humanitarian assistance. Working together, FFP and its partner, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), provide humanitarian assistance in the form of in-kind food aid to the refugees.
