Field notes, stories, perspectives and updates related to our ministry in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya
March 8, 2018
So today we offered a general training open to anyone – trauma care training in the morning and theological training after lunch. People came from different parts of the camp as well as from the host community (Turkana).
The teaching sessions were sandwiched between a beautiful meal of Ethiopian injera and coffee served up by our Ethiopian cooks as in previous days.
The March training has now come to a close and it is time for us to begin our 2 day journey back to the US tomorrow. We leave with fresh appreciation for our brothers and sisters here and for the critical role the refugee church plays in helping people recover from displacement by keeping hope alive.

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.
