Field notes, stories, perspectives and updates related to our ministry in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya
February 4, 2021
Thanks to our generous financial partners, we were able to supply our refugee church partners with these new bicycles this month. Kakuma refugee camp is huge (12 square miles) and neighboring Kalobeyei refugee settlement has made it even bigger. Getting around is slow and tough - especially so when the weather is harsh (i.e. extreme heat, high winds, torrential rains, etc.). By supplying pastors and Christian leaders with bicycles, we are helping them better serve their community - and thereby strengthening faith, hope and resilience s in the camp.

IAFR has been serving people in Kakuma refugee camp since 2010. About 195,000 people (mostly women and children) have found temporary refuge here from war, persecution and gross violations of human rights.
We visit Kakuma 2-3 times annually, during which time this blog is most active.
Visit the Kakuma page on the IAFR.org website to learn more!
We partner with United Refugee and Host Churches (URHC) - a refugee initiated association of over 160 churches from within the camp and surrounding host community.
We also partner with National Council of Churches Kenya (NCCK), an exceptional humanitarian agency.
