Although UN agencies report an improvement in humanitarian conditions in Somalia, they point out that more than 250,000 displaced people are still living in camps in the capital, Mogadishu.

While many arrived there during the 2011 famine which affected the country, some have been living in camps for more than 20 years due to the civil war.

Thousands of displaced families were recently moved to a new camp site established by various UN agencies and their partners in cooperation with the Somali government.
