Browsing through the values of social_facility:for, it's a lot more
diverse than just victims of abuse and poverty -- and
social_facility:for=refugee(s) has hundreds of uses. But you definitely
have a point about scale -- some of these camps house over a hundred
thousand people. That's on the scale of a small city -- a community, not
a facility. So maybe place=refugee_camp is a better solution.
