Kenya Orders Closure of two refugee camps, gives ultimatum to UN agency

Ooof! Every time I think things are rough, I'm reminded that others have it much rougher. Nearly half (15 out of 38) of my online students live in (and sometimes have grown up in) the Kakuma Refugee camp operated by the UNHCR in Kenya, Africa. They've suffered terribly with genocide and drought in their home countries, over-crowding, and related problems in a camp designed to hold one-third of the 190,000 residents, and the Covid pandemic. Now, in about 2 weeks, they are likely to be homeless again as their camp has been ordered to close. And that's just my two classes! There are dozens of other students in other classes that may be affected.
