7000 Safe Stoves for Darfur Refugee Mothers

Dear Darfur Women Network’s Donors and Friends,

Thank you so much for supporting the ‘7000 Safe Stoves for Darfur Refugee Mothers Project.’ You have inspired us, and you have inspired others who initially hesitated to help others before deciding to take positive actions for change.  We thank you for helping us to secure our permanent partnership with GlobalGiving to raise the necessary funds needed to implement our projects!

We are now prepared to provide safe stoves to refugee mothers from Darfur.  However, we still need your donation to enable the volunteer staff to implement the final stage of the project. The volunteers, with your assistance, will then be able to help the displaced survivors of genocide in Darfur and women and girls in refugee camps in Chad.  

Furthermore, we invite you to visit our ‘Gift for Good’ fund at  This site offers our donors and friends a chance to make a donation by purchasing a gift through Darfur Women Network.  

One of our Gifts for Good, called “Mahafaza,” means “savior” or “protector,” appropriately named since most people around the globe would claim that mothers, who love, feed, and care for their children, are our primary protectors. With your help, mothers in Darfur’s refugee camps will be better enabled to protect their families, as they naturally yearn to do.  Your donation of $60 or more (Includes shipping cost) will bring you this finely hand-crafted, leather Mahafaza purse, while providing fuel-efficient cooking stoves for Darfur’s mothers so they can properly feed and protect their families.

With your purchase, you will not only obtain valuable gifts for your loved ones, but critically assist our programs, which will help the displaced feed their families, help young Darfurian immigrants further their medical education and return to strengthen their communities, and help provide safe stoves to Darfurian refugee mothers and their children living in camps.

Our gifts are handmade by displaced people living in the camps; they are traditional, cultural, and symbolic. Mahafaza has two pockets 5 inches deep, L.5.2 Inches and W.5 inches.  They would make great gifts for holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s, or simply gifts for friends.  They also make great gifts for you, yourself, as you support disadvantaged women and girls, helping you remember your participation in this Gift for Good fund, which is vitally significant to give hope to those who have little.

Finally, our Shell Bracelet Gift for $30 includes shipping will support our new project.  Our new project is called “Medical Career Scholarship.”  To help young Darfurian immigrants become doctors and strengthen their communities, these scholarships will go to outstanding Indiana high school students from Darfur who have been selected by the Envision Program to attend early training and skill preparation for a Career in Medicine.  For more information, please see:

Dear Friends,

On behalf of Darfur Women Network (DWN), I would like to sincerely thank you for all your work and support during our September 2013, Open Challenge fundraiser. Because of your commitment and efforts, we reached our initial goal and secured a spot on the GlobalGiving site – DWN is now a permanent partner with GlobalGiving.


Congratulations to everyone — donors and the fundraiser team — who helped contribute to the success of our achievement. We came together as a community of caring people and accomplished something all of us can feel proud of. You have shown your confidence in DWN and our mission to protect and empower refugee women and girls who are survivors of genocide from my home region of Darfur, Sudan. 


Thank you for answering our calls; I would like you to know how much you are valued and I consider you a part of our team. 


We will be sending you regular reports about our work – please give us feedback. We’re eager for you to know what your donation has helped fund, what we have achieved, and what we aspire to accomplish.


We can all feel proud of our achievement. You have helped refugee women and children make a giant step forward. Thank you again for what you have done to help this cause.


With gratitude,


Mastora Bakhiet
