In Kenya, Refugees Happy To Get Dates Despite Ration Cuts

With the support of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, The World Food Programme (WFP) has provided 212 metric tons of dates to the refugees in Dadaab, Kenya.


Kenya largely depends on rain-fed agriculture for its food requirements, relying on the two main rain seasons namely the March–May long rains and October–December short rains. About 80 percent of the land is arid or semi-arid.
