No Refuge for Dadaab’s Refugees


People fleeing persecution are led to believe that the refugee camps are places of refuge, where they are safe from harm.  The fact is they are far from being safe.  I received this picture from Moulid in Dadaab Refugee Camp yesterday.  He has been there over 20 years and seen more than most of us ever will [or should for that matter].  The landmine detonated just yards from where he was standing though thankfully he escaped unharmed.  Let’s hope I don’t manage to find any mines next March!
