Like the now 30,000 residents of Dar Es Salaam, committee members come from across Sudan, far north to the south, east to west, reflecting the vast ethnic diversity and language of their country. What they all have in common is how they came to Dar Es Salaam--fleeing civil war and conflicts that have plagued Sudan for decades. As Local Committee Chairman Mohamed Osman Mohamed, a 35-year-old trader originally from South Kordofan, put it: "We are the children of conflict and pioneers in the new Sudan. Our struggle is a shared one."
