Map of Instability in Somali There has been instability in Somali from the year 2007. People are always dying while others badly injured. This worsened in 2008 and many people ran for their safety into Kenya. Kenya received them and they were settled in camps. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (U.N.H.C.R) came in and helped. They protected the refugees and settled them. They gave food and shelter. Many are still in refugee camps since Somali is still instable. Many people and organisations are still looking for means of solving the problem. Read more.
