    On 5 July 2019, at the invitation of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), Ambassador Bazański visited the Dadaab Refugee Camp located in north-eastern Kenya, inhabited, according to recent estimates, by over 211 000 people, mainly of Somali origin.


    The purpose of his visit was to monitor the project implemented in Dadaab by the Kenyan branch of the World Food Programme, and financed, inter alia, within the Polish Aid scheme.

     

    In December 2018, Poland decided to allocate the amount of PLN 400,000 dollars to support WFP Kenya's activities aimed at ensuring food security in the refugee camps of Dadaab and Kakuma, the Kalobeyei settlement and some of the Kenyan counties most affected by last year's long-term drought. Thanks to Poland's contribution, the organization could work to reduce the scale of malnutrition among pregnant and lactating women, infants and children up to the age of five.

     

    During his visit to Dadaab, the Ambassador had the opportunity to meet with the regugee leaders as well as exchange with the beneficiaries of Polish Aid and representatives of humanitarian organizations operating in the region, including UNHCR, Red Cross and WFP. He also visited the local hospital, marketplace and the food distribution center.
