Working for Humanitarian Assistance and Durable Solutions for Somali Returnees

It has been almost 2 years since Somali refugees in Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, one of the world largest refugee camps, started returning to Somalia. With support from various donors (Japan, France, UNHCR, etc), IOM and its partners, in close collaboration with the government, have so far assisted over 33,000 returnees at the way stations at the Kenya-Somalia border as well as in the areas of return, mostly in the southern part of Somalia.
