Poverty and homelessness
Extreme poverty, violent conflict and climactic hazards have forced many in eastern Africa to flee. Djibouti is host to over 30,000 refugees, representing about one-third of its population. Many of the refugees in Djibouti are children.
Despite being a place where so many refugees cross the border of their own country to seek refuge, Djibouti still suffers from challenges in development, with a high poverty rate and an infrastructure system that only exacerbates existing disease outbreaks from poor WASH resources.
In collaboration with local and international partners, we have provided our relief units in Djibouti as temporary homes for displaced families to live in safely. Learn more about our support.
