Abstract East Africa has been a hot spot for wars and conflict for several years. As a result, many have been uprooted from their homes and forced to find safety elsewhere. Many of those forced to flee and then victimized are women and girls. Kenya is where most have sought refuge. This thesis deals with the problems of flight, the violence and sexual abuse that occur in the refugee camps, and efforts of international organizations to cope with those problems.
