DADAAB, KENYA - AUGUST 23: A woman leans against a tree in the world's biggest refugee complex August 23, 2009 in Dadaab, Kenya. The Dadaab refugee complex in northeastern Kenya, which consists of three separate camps, has been in operation for 18 years and is currently home to some 289,500 people. Most of the residents of the camps are Somalis who are fleeing escalating violence in their country. Dadaab currently holds three times as many people for which it was designed, with 43,000 refugees arriving from Somalia this year alone. Concerned over the deteriorating situation in Dadaab, the Kenyan government has recently commenced a move of some refugees to another camp that is a three-day bus ride away.
