Refugee Infographics: May

FaithandForcedMigration's Refugee Infographics This month's refugee infographic highlights Kenya's recent announcement that they intend to end refugee hosting and close refugee camps housing more than 500,000 people. Such action would force hundreds of thousands of vulnerable individuals to either return to the countries they originally fled from, or seek refuge again in a new country. Most of Kenya's refugees are from countries like Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo and other countries experiencing ongoing conflict.
