Field notes, stories, perspectives and updates related to our ministry in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya
March 5, 2018
We spent the day going deep into theological and trauma care training with 8 refugee church leaders.
It was impressive to see how hungry, open and honest these pastors were as we wrestled with handling Scripture with wisdom, taking its historical context into account.
After a tasty lunch break of injera (Ethiopian food) and freshly roasted and pounded coffee, we returned for an afternoon of training on walking with people who are suffering from unresolved trauma.

IAFR has been serving people in Kakuma refugee camp since 2010. 250,000 people (mostly women and children) have found temporary refuge here from war, persecution and gross violations of human rights.
We visit Kakuma 2 times annually, during which time this blog is most active.

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.
