'Millions needed' to help Dadaab refugee camp

Charities working at the world's largest refugee camp in Kenya say they're running out of money to help people there.

Eight organisations, including Oxfam and Save the Children, say at least £16 million is needed to pay for food, shelter and medicine at Dadaab camp.

Almost half a million people now live at Dadaab, which opened in 1991.

Most of them are from neighbouring Somalia and are escaping problems such as conflict and drought.

Ricky visited Dadaab last year and he's been looking into what's happening there now.
