Anatomy of a Refugee Camp. A Flash presentation of how refugee camps are set up, and very educational for those of us in the world lucky enough to have never seen one. [via, the designer's website]

My apologies if this is a double. Searching for the url didn't bring anything up, but searching for "refugee camp" brought up too many hits to check them all. I had known this site for a while, but think I saw it directly from CBC.

amazing that they set up a cholera area even before there's an outbreak...

This just depressed me...I guess because I've seen the Palestinian camps...and this isn't at all what they're like...50 years after they opened.

Thanks for the link, jb. This is really grea. (The information, I mean. You know.)

Ditto, andrew. Lots of really interesting information. It's interesting that they make sure the food must be cooked (rather than ready-to-eat) because the only way that it will get fairly distributed is if it has to go through the women first.

I was glad to see a breastfeeding station with extra rations for breastfeeding mothers.
