As early as March of 2011, Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) working in Eastern Africa predicted a drought of similar proportions to that which caused the terrible famine in Ethiopia in 1982. Over the following months, hundreds of thousands of refugees poured into Dadaab, a town in North East Kenya surrounded by refugee camps. The Lutheran World Federation (LWF), who manages the Dadaab and Kakuma refugees camps, home to over half a million people.
From August – November 2011, Communicating Aid worked for the Lutheran World Federation in Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti compiling stories for donors and liaising with media to promote the work that the organisation does.
