Jesuit Refugee Service/USA's Channel

From the beginning, Jesuit Refugee Service has made it a priority to work with "forgotten" refugees, those living in the shadows, whose plight is overlooked by others.

As difficult and challenging as the camp situation is and it is not a desirable situation for refugees at all, for humanitarian organizations to work in a camp is in some regards easier. It is very clearly defined who are the refugees, the numbers, the areas, what is needed, etc.

People are together as a community and that is the big difference to refugees in urban areas. They are not together as a community.

They are spread out all over the city. Sometimes they live in the poorer areas because urban refugees belong to the group of the poorest of the poor.
