“It is a scene of desperation as the refugees arrive at the border, relieved to have finally arrived to a safe place. They look frail and exhausted, a reflection of just how the journey was long and grueling,” said Lucy Murunga, a World Vision emergency communicator who works with refugees in the camp.
The refugee’s first stop at the camp is the reception center. There they receive food, water and basic supplies like a tent, a sleeping mat and soap. Many have fled with nothing. World Vision one of the many aid organizations assisting refugees in the camp, providing food assistance for the daily arrivals.
