MSF doctors check 7 year old Fatima Mohammed who weighs just 12 kgs, (half the recommended weight of a child her age, and the typical weight of a child of around 2 in the UK) at the MSF registration centre at the Dagahaley camp part of the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. The drought is the worst in East Africa for 60 years. The UN described it as a humanitarian emergency. The already overcrowded complex received 1,000 new refugees a day in June, five times more than a year ago. About 30,000 people arrived at the Dadaab refugee camp in June, according to UNHCR compared to 6,000 in June 2010.
