Tents arrive in Kenya to relieve overcrowding in refugee camps

UNHCR aid to Somalia

A series of emergency airlift flights to bring aid to Somalis in refugee camps has begun.

One hundred tones of family-sized tents have been dispatched to the Dadaab refugee camp near the Kenya-Somalia border.

The airlifts will support the UN refugee agency's (UNHCR) efforts to help more than 430,000 Somali refugees in Kenya and Ethiopia, who are fleeing drought and conflict.

Gerry Adams spoke to UNHCR Spokesperson Emmanuel Nyabera about the tents and how they will help the overcrowded camps to accommodate arriving refugees.
