The destitution trap – video

This is one of six short campaigning videos made by Paul Gilbert for Refugee Action, an independent national charity that works with refugees to build new lives in the UK.

It is a powerful film featuring destitute, refused asylum seekers talking about the devastating impact that destitution has had on their lives and their fears of returning home.
