IAFR is serving in Kakuma refugee camp and neighboring Kalobeyei refugee settlement in remote northwestern Kenya.
The combined refugee population in Kakuma is about 200,000 people, the majority of whom are from South Sudan, Sudan and Somalia. But there are also people from Ethiopia, Eritrea, DR Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda and other countries that have found temporary refuge in the camp and settlement.
We are also serving our friends in an IDP camp (internally displaced people) just outside of Kakuma town. These people are Kenyans that were displaced during the 2007 post election violence in the country. Ten years later, they are still struggling to survive.
IAFR is serving in close partnership with United Refugee and Host Churches, a refugee initiated association of churches from within the camp and surrounding host community. We also partner with National Council of Churches Kenya (NCCK), an outstanding humanitarian agency serving in Kakuma.
