When they finally get to a country that is a safe haven, like Kenya in east Africa, they are put in a refugee camp. These camps are deep inside the country, where nobody wants to live. They are makeshift, temporary situations with tents and restrooms outdoors. A lot of things can happen at these camps as families are waiting for any country that will receive them. That waiting period can be about 10 years, of just living in limbo, waiting to be picked by whoever wants to accept you.
