"Warehoused"

Photos from my time in Dadaab, Kenya.  Dadaab is the sight of the largest refugee camp in the world.  The facility was created to house refugees from the neighboring countries of Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia with a capacity of 90,000.  Today there are approximately 550,000 refugees living in the Dadaab camps with no prospects for returning to their home countries.

Omar was one of our private security guards, but this was just his day job.  Outside of Dadaab he produces music videos for R&B artists in Mombasa.

Waiting to be processed and placed within the camps.

Notice the ball.
