Together we will build a rehabilitation center for disabled refugees
Kakuma Refugee Camp hosts more than 180,000 uprooted refugees who have fled wars and persecutions in neighboring countries. It is a massive 12 sq km camp, with 4 structured districts, 19 primary schools, and a hospital.
In 2014 Humanity & Inclusion, jointly with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, decided to set up a temporary rehabilitation center to assist the many victims with disabilities.
Today, this temporary tent is insufficient to meet the needs of disabled refugees living in Kakuma. Moreover, the tent is often uprooted by strong winds or inaccessible when it rains.
There is an urgent need to build a permanent rehabilitation center and a workshop to provide appropriate long-term support to disabled refugees.
Together, we will support the victims in the long-term. Together, we will bring back hope.
After fleeing Ethiopia and South Sudan, Nyaduol, 17, lives now in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in northwest Kenya. Her left leg was amputated after she was seriously burned in an accident.
Her new prosthesis, which she received from Handicap International, has restored her energy, and she’s now a volleyball Champ!
Today, children like Nyaduol, need your help. Thanks to your gift, we will welcome them at the new rehabilitation center. Together we will bring back hope.
