In mid-November, the UN confirmed an outbreak of cholera at the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya.
According to UNHCR, heavy rains and flooding are exacerbating poor sanitation conditions, with the 500,000 inhabitants of the world’s largest refugee camp resorting to using unsafe water. As a result, the disease is now threatening to spread beyond the camp’s confines.
In an attempt to combat the disease, the UNHCR is increasing its hygiene and sanitation activities in the camp and setting up treatment centres.
Pray for those fighting to stem the cholera outbreak, and that people who have contracted it will be successfully treated.
