Today, over 50 million refugees and displaced persons have been forced to flee their homes. FilmAid uses the power of film and media to bring life-saving information, psychological relief and much-needed hope to refugees and other communities in need around the globe.
We work at the front lines of human crisis: Kakuma and Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya, Nairobi slums, post-Katrina New Orleans, the Thailand-Myanmar border, Afghanistan, Haiti, and most recently Jordan. We reach individuals through film screenings, distribution of life-saving information, and mass awareness campaigns. We also deliver hands-on training and skills-building through film workshops and mentoring that helps transform the lives of those served.
