IFO refugee camp was established in 1991 near the remote Kenyan village of Dadaab, in the North East Province, to respond to the growing numbers of refugees fleeing the Somalia Civil War.
Nowadays there live more than 160.000 people devided over 3 camps, with the majority ( 97% ) coming from Somalia.
Other refugees come from Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda, Eritrea and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Since the early days of IFO camp many have returned to their native country, but still thousands of people have called these camps their home for the past 15 years.
