Let Me Introduce You

Meet David. His mum and dad were killed in an air bombardment in their home when he was eleven. He was outside playing at the time. He left South Sudan on foot when he was 14 and arrived some time later at Kukuma refugee camp in north eastern Kenya. Some time later he moved to Dadaab refugee camp where he has been living for the past six years. He is now 26 and the community representative for minorities groups. There are around 1200 people from Birundi, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Rwanda who live alongside the majority Somali Muslim population at the biggest refugee camp on the globe.  David is a lovely guy. He has a sister who still lives in Sudan who he managed to speak with last year but other than that speaking with relatives is nigh on impossible. David is on the list for being offered a home in a host doner country though he tells me that it won’t be the UK as we only accept refugees from Somalia.
