Join us at the Fire Hall Theatre as Global Friends Coalition presents a screening of the documentary Warehoused. The film examines the stories and struggles of Somali refugees living within the world’s largest refugee camp complex in Dadaab, Kenya. There is a suggested donation of $5.
An estimated 12 million people live in refugee camps worldwide and only 0.1% are resettled, repatriated, or integrated into normal society each year. Warehoused, explores the plight of long-term refugees through a glimpse into the lives of those living in Dadaab, Kenya, the world’s largest refugee camp.
We see the camp's inner workings through one man's journey to do everything in his power to provide for his family. This man’s story is not unique however; it accentuates the much larger problems that long-term refugees have faced for centuries.
Warehoused does not contain any strong language, violence, or disturbing images, but it does tell the stories of people who have lived through difficult and tragic situations. Parents of young children should use their own discretion.
