30 year old Fatima Aden Mohammed from Bardera in the Juba valley, Somalia protects her four year old daughter Dahira (2nd from left), who has malaria outside the registration camp at the Dagahaley camp part of the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. Her other daughter, two year old Habiba, died on the way to the camp. 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.
