Areas of Nairobi, Kenya where large refugee populations live.
Conflicts in Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Rwanda, Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo have forced hundreds of thousands of refugees to seek safe haven in Kenya and Uganda.
Since its inception in 2002, the HIAS Refugee Trust of Kenya (HRTK) has served the most vulnerable of this population who have sought refuge in the urban centers of Nairobi and Kampala. Many of the refugees HRTK serves are survivors of torture and/or sexual or gender-based violence. HRTK has developed a reputation for exceptionally comprehensive services – and an outstanding quality of service – that has become known internationally.
