We arrived in Kakuma yesterday to find it was World’s Aids Day. Our friends and partners at National Council of Churches (NCCK) took us to the part of the camp where NGOs and refugees were observing the day together with music, skits and speeches. AIDS continues to threaten the lives of people here. I can’t imagine being HIV positive in such a harsh environment.
The gathering was also a visual reminder of how the vast majority of refugees are children, youth and women.
I met these new friends at the Aids Day festivities. They asked me to take these photos and make them available to them – so I’m doing so through this blog. Enjoy guys!
