Humanitarian groups estimate that there are currently between 1,500 to 2,000 Darfuri refugees living in the United States. They have formed small communities in Indiana, Maine, Philadelphia, the Washington, D.C. suburbs, and Brooklyn, New York.

Hamza Ibrahim is a refugee from Darfur who now lives in the Kensington neighborhood of Brooklyn. He told WIDE ANGLE about growing up in Darfur, driving a taxi in New York City, and collecting clothes and school supplies to send to people living in refugee camps back home.
