Dadaab Refugee Complex is the 3rd largest in the World
First established in 1991, the Dadaab Refugee Complex in Kenya is one of the largest in the world.

Most refugees came there during the civil war in Somalia in the early 1990s.

Of these, many have children and grandchildren who were born in the camp. Others arrived in 2011 when the country was hit by drought and famine.

Today, the UN and the Somalian government are supporting refugees who would like to voluntarily return to Somalia.

The Story of Dadaab


Camp was established when refugees fleeing the civil war in Somalia started to cross the border into Kenya


A large part of the residents in the old camps (Ifo, Dagahaley, Hagadera) arrived in Dadaab in the 1990s and have children and grandchildren born in the camps


The old camps resemble naturally-grown towns and have developed into commercial hubs connecting north-eastern Kenya and southern Somalia


A second large influx occurred in 2011, when some 130,000 refugees arrived, fleeing drought and famine in southern Somalia.
