As of last week, the refugee operation reported 6,000 new arrivals to the Dadaab camp in the month of November. The influx continues with the current number rising up to 227,000 resulting in strain of the available resources within the camp.
The results of the retargeting exercise for the school feeding programme that was shared with partners and stakeholders on Friday, 14 November has received positive response; a mission is planned for Mombasa to embark on selection of slum schools to be included starting January 2009.
The in-kind donation of 2,000 mt of rice by the Government of Kenya to the EMOP will be distributed to the districts under the programme in the coming cycle in December.
A substantial reduction in rainfall, from the previous week, has been reported in most parts of the country. The trucks in Mombasa that had been put on hold due to poor road conditions have now started moving to Turkana, Lokichoggio and Moyale.
