Abdullah and Khalid were childhood friends growing up as refugees from Somalia in Kenya. Kenya has one of the largest refugee populations, Dadaab being the biggest refugee camp in the world. In 1993 Khalid went to Uganda and the young friends lost contact for the following 19 years.
They finally found each other after so many years via our simple tracing tool and exchanged contacts. The two friends are so happy about finding each other, they wanted to spread the knowledge about Refugees United’s mission. Abdullah was part of the participants in a community forum recently held in Dadaab, where he was able to share and explain his success story with the other participants during the forum.
We wish that this story will inspire others to take action and sign up.
