The Collateral Repair Podcast aims to share the stories of refugees living in Amman, Jordan. On a monthly basis, CRP invites you into an intimate space that will allow you to hear and understand refugees’ experiences in their own words. Each episode features an interview with a member of one of Jordan’s refugee communities, a supporting interview with a professional or employee at CRP, a Q&A in response to listeners’ questions, and a quick update of developments that month at CRP.
||CleanEpisode 7 (March 2019) - Stories from Darfur||In our seventh episode, Waseem, a Sudanese refugee from Darfur, tells his story of leaving his home in 2003 before finally making it to Amman over a decade later. Sudanese refugees are some of the most underserved refugees in Jordan, particularly because the conflict in Darfur receives little media attention. We also turn to Aaron Williams, co-founder of the NGO Sawiyan, which is one of the only other nonprofits in Jordan aimed at helping East African refugees.||5 3 2019||Free||View in iTunes|
