Migration

Refugees from South Sudan gather at the registration centre of the refugee camp in Kakuma, Turkana District, northwest of Kenya's capital Nairobi May 18, 2012. Refugees fleeing violence in parts of Sudan and South Sudan have been arriving at Kakuma refugee camp in large numbers, and aid agencies fear the camp's capacity may soon be exceeded. The camp was initially designed to accommodate 100,000 people, and currently accommodates about 96,000 refugees, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) agency.
