Update

Greetings! Darfur Women Network (DWN) is grateful for your support. You saved lives.

It is usually very difficult to get in contact with the volunteers stationed overseas. However, yesterday’s phone call was clear. They told me that the 30000 refugees drink water from one source, the wells that your donation helped to clean. However, it was a risky operation. DWN was worried, especially, when I watched the video and saw the risky tools they used. Despite they, put themselves in danger, but for their families and for their community. However, it will never happen again.

Without your support, we could not accomplish these goals. The donors should feel proud of the positive impacts their donations enabled.

Please join DWN to achieve their next step for their goal?

Our goal is to clean up more wells, approximately three to five wells, to safely to reduce the struggling of shortages of drinking water in the camp this year. We need your support to send the safely tools and to purchase food for the volunteers to take all the sand and wood as well as other trash from inside the well.

DWN is the only sources that has helped the survivors of Darfur genocide in Touloum Camp, in Chad with clean drinking water. They have been living in the camp since 2003. 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.

We currently need to clean up more wells to enable the refugees to reduce the suffering of shortages of water. This year, we need to ensure the safety of the volunteers who enter 20 meters into the wells.

We are excited that we purchased all the safety tools and they are ready to be sent to Chad. Now we are working hard to provide the volunteers with food.

Please help us with your generous donations to increase the water resources safely without putting anyone at risk.Please check the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtJneCviJ9g Thank you so much!

Update - August 2018

Dear Supporters,

We are thrilled with the progress with which your donations have enabled so many families to benefit from our 7,000 Safe Stoves for Refugee Mothers. 

In addition to the families who are now using safe stoves over traditional open fire stoves, women within the camps are have found a renewed sense of empowerment through their own manufacturing of these stoves. Each team of women have trained and worked to create a tool that can be produced from local materials and sold at an affordable price. This is incredibly powerful for both the community and each woman's individuality. 

This program continues to provide opportunity for safer ways of cooking, living and surviving in a most difficult situation. We are so grateful and humbled by the fortitude of the women who have worked so very hard to rebuild their lives for themselves and their families. 

We are also grateful for you and your continued support. Your support really does impact lives for the better!

To better measure our progress in numbers, designated DWN volunteers have traveled to Chad for this season to gather data and report directly from our Touloum Camp. We are anxiously awaiting their final reports on not only the 7,000 Safe Stoves program, but others as well. 

It's important to Darfur Women Network to visit the camps, speak with refugees and volunteers to provide the most reliable information about all of our programs. It's this one on one attention that helps us best assist those who are working daily to survive within the refugee camps. We will always be dedicated to our mission and look forward to continuing to do everything we can to support the safety and empowerment of women.

Thank you!
