The people can try to escape by boat to Yemen or risk their lives to get to the Dadaab Refugee Camp in Kenya. Dadaab is the world's biggest refugee camp with 270,000 currently 'living' there.
It is 80km from the Kenya/Somalia border - a border that is officially closed.
Bjorn flies in there tomorrow. The NRC couldn't find me a place on the flight in because it is full with UN personnel and relief equipment. It would have been an amazing experience but understandably other people are needed there more than me.
Bjorn will be my eyes and ears...and yours
