Badbaado (refugee camp)

Badbaado is a refugee camp outside of Mogadishu, Somalia. It began as a result of the 2011 East Africa drought and famine. It now houses roughly 30,000 refugees.[1]

Food aid is available for refugees there, but its supply has been poor because of the policies of al-Shabab.[2] The limited access to food has been a source of violence in the camp.[3] There has also been looting by freelance militias and government forces.[4] Due to the unsafe conditions, some refugees have fled Badbaado to seek other camps.[5]
