Hello supporters and friends,

I apologize for the delayed report, it has been extremely difficult to receive information from the refugee camps due to weather and broken phones, which are our only means of communication.

Currently the Sudanese government is in a process of changing due to the revolution started by the Sudanese youth. Unfortunately, security in Darfur and the security surrounding the refugee camps has worsened worse. Many young civilians have been raped while attempting to collect firewood.

In addition, there are more updates about the other upcoming and current projects.

Cell Phone Distribution

Cell phone donations are very helpful for two reasons. Firstly, the two cell phones we gave to our volunteers allow Darfur Women Network (DWN) to communication with them and to send and receive documents and information.

The second reason is that the cell phones help to protect refugee women and girls from rape and violence. We would like to give more phones away to the refugee women as protection. They can use the phones to collect information about what is occurring by the camps before the head out to collect firewood. Please help us by donate phones to achieve to help protect the vulnerable refugees.

Safe Stove Production

It is currently the rainy season in Chad. Thus, the Economic Empowerment Group, who make safe stoves, in the Darfur refugee camps, are waiting for the summer to return to continue producing stoves. The rain has started from June 2019. By October, the environment will be suitable for making and distributing safe stoves in the Touloum Camp. Refugee mothers are waiting to receive their safe stoves to reduce their trips to collect firewood by 75%.

 

Hungers

The World Food Program reduced the food that is provided to Darfur refugees in Chad. The refugees have experienced hunger for months. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1JfGOG74C0&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR30zQ9jjH8y4TRTeMYEIhNlAz-GD45E6gqsMjUY3Dw3lypgmJWScca9OkQ

Hello our dear friends,

 

We, the Darfur Women Network, DWN, and our clients, and our staff are grateful for your strong support to our water project.  In our last report, we shared with you that we purchased and sent safety tools and  to our volunteer team in Darfur refugees camp in Chad.

 

In June2019, the rainy season has started, but it is still raining. The refugees get their drinking water from valleys during rainy season. All the wells had been buried. The reason behind the burying of the wells has been due to the rainfall that washed sand from highland to the lowland one where the wells were dug.

Now, our volunteers are ready to clean drinking wells. Their safety tools are available in the camp. then, we will work hard to enable the refugees to drink clean water. This year, we ensure the safety of the volunteers who enter 20 meters into the wells.

We appeal to you to continue your kindness support to donate to enable us to purchase food for the volunteers to do their work. The food we need to provide to our volunteers are meals and tea. Now, we are working hard to complete our preparation to achieve our goals (drinking water). Please, help us with your generous donations to increase the water resources.

Hello our friends,

 

We, the Darfur Women Network, DWN, our beneficiaries, and staff are grateful for your strong support to our water project. Today, we are excited to share with you your positive impact of your donation on the survivors of Darfur genocide in the refugees’ camp in Chad.  

Your donations have helped us to purchase food to our volunteers to clean up the wells to provide drinking water to the refugees.

On April 20th, we were able to send the safety tools, plastic boots, helmets, gloves, touch, cords, and safety belts. The refugee families always go to get water. Some they have donkeys and some borrow donkeys from their friends, some get five gallon containers on women’s and girls’ heads. They use water for drinking, cooking, little water for cleaning few dishes, and little water for personal hygiene.  

The last cleaning up wells was in April 20th, the team was on safety tools, we provided food that was cooked in the camp. The volunteers were sent down to 25 meters safely.

 

However, there are two cleaned wells collapsed. Now, we renewed the project  to provide more water to 30000 refugee in the camp and safety tools to support our volunteers from the refugees to clean-up wells to provide water to the refugees.

Would you please , check the link below to see your impact of your donation on the survivors of Darfur genocide in the camp in Chad, you  will see the risk of cleaning wells before your donation. Then, you will see how your eliminate the risk by providing safety tools.
