Support initiatives driven by the men and women of Sudan to combat difficulties including violence, disease, lack of medical care for injuries, shortages of water and food, and inadequate shelter.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Since fighting broke out in Sudan’s western region of Darfur in 2003, it is estimated that over 300,000 Africans have been brutally murdered and over 1.6 million displaced by the Sudanese government-supported Arab militia. Militia members and government troops have systematically bombed and then burned African villages, tortured civilians, raped thousands of women, slaughtered hundreds of thousands of villagers and forced the remaining to flee their homes with nothing.
How will this project solve this problem?
The Sudan fund will support local project leaders using innovative approaches to survive and rebuild in the Darfur region and in surrounding refugee camps.
Potential Long Term Impact
Among the millions of Sudanese displaced from their homes, project leaders will create and implement local solutions to effectively respond to problems of hunger, lack of clean water, shelter, violence including rape, and medical care.
