The World Health Food Program meagre rations only provide for one meal per day to refugees in Kakuma Camp, Kenya. Food, consisting mostly of sorghum runs out within the first two weeks of a month. WFP ration has been decreasing due to massive increases in the forcibly displaced migrant and refugee populations and fund shortages.
