For most Muslims around the world, this week’s Eid Al Fitr holiday – which marks the end of Ramadan – is a time for celebration.
But for refugees I met in Dadaab, it was just another week of survival. Many said that given their daily struggles, there was no celebration, only prayers for a better future.
Katuma (pictured above), a mother of seven living in one of the Ifo extension camps in Dadaab, said: “We only go to pray but there are no celebrations, because life is difficult. We ask God for peace in our country.”
