Last Friday we posted about the agreement between the UN refugee agency and the governments of Somalia and Kenya to voluntarily repatriate Somali refugees. Today, we share Juda’s story. Juda is a psychosocial counselor with the Center for Victims of Torture-Dadaab. Although most refugees living in the complex of camps in Dadaab are from Somalia, there are also refugees from South Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea and other countries. Juda is from Ethiopia and tells how news of the agreement has caused him concern.

Please join us on Tuesday, March 4 in Washington, DC for a briefing on responding to the Syrian humanitarian and refugee crises. A panel of experts from CVT, the National Consortium of Torture Treatment Programs, the International Rescue Committee, and the Refugee Council USA will provide information on the current status of the crises and offer recommendations for actions the United States can take to alleviate the suffering of Syrians living inside the country and those living as refugees in the region.
