16 May 2023, Kakuma, Turkana County, Kenya: LWF staff prepare food inside the reception centre of section 3 of Kakuma refugee camp. Managed by the Lutheran World Federation, the reception centre provides initial support to incoming refugees, including twice-daily meals, distribution of core-relief-items, pre-registration for refugee status, and referrals for specialist support. In recent months, a sudden influx of refugees – particularly from DRC and Burundi, many of whom have shifted from refugee camps in other countries due to worsened living conditions – has meant capacity is stretched, and with a lack of sufficient shelter material and land arrangements organised by the UNHCR, many refugees have stayed more than 3 months in the centre, despite the purpose of the facilities being to host people for up to two weeks before resettlement inside the actual refugee camp.
