Curt Goering

Curt Goering discusses the new book about Dadaab, "City of Thorns," with author Ben Rawlence.

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.
