As of July 22nd, Oxfam is providing water to more than 20,000 refugees on the outskirts of IFO1 refugee camp in Dadaab, Kenya.

- 16,000 of the people are receiving their water through trucking and the remaining 4000 through piped water direct from the borehole
- We are also hosting a further 500 people from host communities with clean water
- Before Oxfam's tanks, there was no water in the outskirts. The nearest place to find water was over 2km away in IFO camp 1 and was often empty
- The average person needs 10 litres of water per day (minimum). They are currently receiving only 6 litres
- Tanks are refilled every day
- a 20 litre jerry can costs $2.19 (250 Kenyan shillings)
- To install a tap stand costs 27,000 Kenyan Shillings.
