My radio is my source of information. I know what’s happening globally, in Somalia and here in Kenya”, Mr. Hassan, a 74-year-old refugee told us. “I know what happened in France and everything about the new cabinet appointments in Somalia.”

Mr. Hassan carries his radio around every day. “Other elderly people also like the programs and we sit together and listen. We mostly listen to the local radio station Star FM and to BBC Somalia (part ofBBC World Service).” Mr. Hassan fled his native Somalia for Kenya in 1994 and has lived in the Dadaab camps since
