Genocide Prevention Month : Darfur

  • Since 2003, more than 300,000 innocent civilians in the Darfur region of Western Sudan have been killed.

  • 2.5 million people now live in camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Sudan or in refugee camps in neighboring Chad and the Central African Republic.

  • Millions of people rely on international aid for survival.

  • In July 2007, the United Nations authorized a peacekeeping force, but the Sudanese government restricts access.

The Save Darfur Coalition’s Darfur from Day One Campaign has joined Genocide Prevention Month (April) by hosting a series of events about Darfur throughout April.

The picture breaks my heart. I think that's the one that won a prize and the photographer killed himself. The story is sad. We should sponsor children in countries like this using the services available like Christian children's fund and others.
