Kakuma and Dadaab

The UN’s Kakuma Refugee Camp in northern Kenya is home to around 180, 757refugees from across east Africa. Dadaab Camp hosts 351,558 refugees.

When families fleeing war arrive at Kakuma or Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya, the Lutheran-managed team is there to welcome them by providing for their basic needs, such as soap, clothing, household utensils, and food for approximately 14 days. The team also assesses their physical and emotional wellbeing, and refers them to appropriate places for follow up and support.

African Refugees

Another way in which you support those at refugee camps is by ensuring that the needs of the most vulnerable are met. This includes making sure that orphans and unaccompanied minors are fostered to appropriate families and that these families receive the guidance they need to care properly for these children.

In addition to looking after new arrivals and supporting the most vulnerable refugees, you also help to provide for over 14,000 pre-schoolers by providing training for the teachers and a nutritious porridge for the children every day.

At Dadaab Refugee Camp you supply foldable wheel chairs to children with disabilities to enable them access schools and bed sheets to 330 elderly persons.

South Sudan

More than  1.3 Million people have fled their homes in South Sudan because of conflict and more than 450,000 new South Sudanese refugees have fled to neighbouring countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda .

Working closely with the UN and other agencies, the Lutheran project in South Sudan has assisted the reintegration of people returning to their homeland after many years in refugee camps in neighbouring countries.

Recent projects supported by you through ALWS have focused on support such as mosquito nets, primary education, shelter reconstruction, water, sanitation and hygiene, peace building and human rights awareness. The current conflict in South Sudan means much funding has been diverted to care for displaced people who've been forced to flee their homes.

Your emergency care through ALWS includes seeds, fishing equipment, mosquito nets, veterinary care for cattle (an important source of livelihood), clean water, latrines, education equipment, support for vulnerable children, and disaster risk reduction.
