In a refugee camp in Kenya, food shortages left kids hungry even before Russia ended grain deal

DADAAB, Kenya (AP) — One of the world’s largest refugee camps offers a stark example of the global food security crisis. Thousands of people have fled Somalia in recent months to escape drought and extremism but have found little to eat when they arrive at the Dadaab camp in neighboring Kenya. One told The Associated Press during a recent visit that he found “peace but no food.” Rations have been reduced for hundreds of thousands of people as international donors give less, and aid groups are seeing more malnourished children. Cindy McCain, who heads the World Food Program, told the AP that Russia’s recent termination of the deal to keep food commodities flowing from Ukraine will deepen the crisis at camps, especially in Africa.
