Hidden Voices: Urban Refugees is a video produced by the International Rescue Committee and MediaServe International. The short film highlights the daily struggles facing thousands of urban refugees living in the Kenyan capital city of Nairobi. In their own words, the refugees tell of how they face poverty, harassment and violence as they make their way in the urban environment.

The video illustrates the many issues highlighted in a new report - Hidden and Exposed: Urban Refugees in Nairobi, Kenya - which you can read at IRCuk.org
