Putting Needs over Nationality: Meeting the Needs of Somali and Sudanese Refugees During the Syrian Crisis
This brief paper serves to voice the perspectives and concerns of ARDD’s Somali and Sudanese beneficiaries. The paper’s methodology is not robust; given its objectives, it need not be. Instead of fully portraying the circumstances faced by Somali and Sudanese refugees in Jordan, including their many, nuanced humanitarian concerns, the paper strives to put forth some of their thoughts and experiences – and, in doing so, to inspire action. Most humanitarian actors are well-aware of the fact that Somali and Sudanese refugees are among the most vulnerable. Nevertheless, far too little is being done.
