Kenya - Kakuma refugee camp


" Kakuma Refugee Camp is located in Turkana District of the north-west of Kenya. Established in 1992, the camp harbours multiple communities; the main populations originate from South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of Congo. There are smaller groups of refugees from Burundi, Eritrea, Uganda, and Rwanda. The camp population is currently estimated to be over 180,000 (UNHCR 2017). These photos were taken in September 2017 as part of the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project, ‘Energy and Forced Displacement’ led by the University of Edinburgh. "
