- Inequality and daily living conditions in refugee camps are amplifying the threat posed by COVID-19.
- We spoke to two refugees from Kakuma, a camp of 192,000 people in northwestern Kenya.
Mohammed Hassan Mohamud has neither a passport nor an official date of birth. He is a Somali refugee from Kakuma camp in northwestern Kenya, having spent much of his life there.
In January, he left to find work in Eastleigh, a low-income neighbourhood in Nairobi, known locally as ‘little Mogadishu’. The building he lives in is crowded, with families of up to six people or more occupying a single room. This is his home as he provides for his family back in Kakuma, 700km away.
