With an estimated 450,000 residents across five camps, the Kambioos refugee complex in Dadaab, Kenya, is the world's largest. Preventing a public health disaster means minimizing the spread of disease by keeping it clean.
Catholic Relief Services, with generous funding from Caritas Internationalis and private support, is working to provide access to clean water, a functioning waste management system, latrine facilities, and education on hygiene and sanitation to almost 30,000 Somali drought refugees living in the camp.
