Congo: The Road to Ruin

http://www.nytimes.com/video/2013/07/22/opinion/100000002350917/congo-the-road-to-ruin.html

A small part of my work at RefugeeOne has been helping to work on news updates and creating a monthly e-newsletter for refugee advocacy and immigration organizations.

About a week ago I saw this short video on the New York times website. I really enjoyed this video for a couple reasons. Even though I am in constant contact with refugees I often forget the difficulties and horrors of which they escaped. This video, unlike many of the articles and clips I have watched relies on real footage and minimal amount of text or explanation. In turn, the video is jarring, confusing and very real. Its journalism like this that I find most powerful and re-connected me with the harrowing realities of refugees path to a better life.
