Somali refugees stuck in limbo in Ethiopian camp

August 25, 2011

"Some 120,000 refugees fleeing drought and violence are stranded in the Dolo Ado camp on the border between Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. Though they're receiving food and medical care, many face an uncertain future...'Around 1,200 new refugees arrive here every day, of which we screen about 600,' Phil James, an aid worker from charity 'Action Against Hunger,' says. Between 30 and 60 percent of the children are malnourished, he says...The emergency medical wards at Dolo Ado are operated by French and Dutch nationals."
