Sarah Farah

Sarah Farah, field coordinator for CVT Dadaab, describes what life is like for many girls and women in the world's largest refugee camp.

As refugees from nearby countries move into the vast camps in Dadaab, Kenya, they go through a process of settling in and learning about the new environment. Because most refugees here have fled countries like Somalia and South Sudan with known histories of conflict and violence, it’s important to CVT to reach out to help as many torture survivors as needed.
