IN THE SHADOWS: Urban refugee children

A Child's Story: This short film gives voice to a 12 year-old refugee boy named Claude who fled his home, war-torn country to take refuge in the slums of Nairobi. Claude’s story, in his own words, offers an intimate and deeply personal window into the hopes and dreams of a refugee boy.

"Powerful storytelling inspires people to action. RefugePoint turned to Amy and Matt to tell our story and highlight our work with urban refugees in Africa. Their powerful imagery and short film put a human face on this vulnerable population and inspired people to support the vital work we do."

-Sasha Chanoff, Co-founder and executive director of RefugePoint
