Date Published: 
01/25/2013
Summary: 

For more than a year, following a spate of kidnappings of aid workers, outside journalists have not been able to visit this isolated, arid camp.(..) The World Food Programme relies on donor funds to feed the almost half a million people in Dadaab. But they are almost $40 million short on keeping people fed for the next six months and are contemplating ration cuts in a camp where people currently exist on the bare minimum. Australia has donated two million dollars but it is a drop in the bucket for what is actually needed.
