WFP Assists People Fleeing South Sudan Conflict
- The refugees, mostly women and children, arrive at Nadapal on the Kenya-South Sudan border, hungry and exhausted
Most refugees from South Sudan come from Jonglei state and have travelled over 500km to reach the camp
Families flee with just the clothes on their backs and a few posessions they can carry
Upon arrival at the Nadapal border post, WFP provides the asylum seekers with special B5 food bars to boost their nutrition

WFP is also providing three cooked meals to the new arrivals at Kakuma Camp, through its partner, the Lutheran World Federation
The refugees receive hot meals when they arrive at any one of the three reception centres at Kakuma Camp
Children between the ages of 6 and 23 months also receive Super Cereal Plus, which is a porridge made from highly fortified and nutritious flour.

With the ever-climbing number of refugees stretching our capacity to provide hot meals, WFP and partners have started distributing food rations at a newly established settlement within the camp
The food rations are to last the refugees until they are registered on the regular food distribution list.
