Hello our friends,
I hope everyone is well!
Today, I am grateful to share with you an exciting informaiton about WORLD REFUGEES'DAY.The Darfur Women Network (DWN) is participating by sharing stories about our Darfur refugee, Khadegah,. The Globalgiving has done incredible work and support towards small organizations like DWN to grow. The Globalgiving chose DWN to be part of the celebration for the first time despite the world celebrating the World Refguees'Day since 2001.
I hope that the world lives in peace to eliminate the suffering and to help war-affected people to live with dignity and without fear. I know what it means when you fear your lives and your families'-I couldn't forget my experience about conflict in my city in Darfur in 1996. On June 20,2017, the World Refugee Day. We invite you to celebrate with us by supporting our project" "Food Security and Agriculture," on Globalgiving's Instagram account on World Refugee day.
Here is the article the Globalgiving put together compiling refugee stories that GlobalGiving will be sharing widely on World Refugee Day. Please do share with your networks! https://medium.com/globalgoodness/12-powerful-refugee-stories-from-around-the-world-5c0a54d2e2ed
I am excited today to share with you the result of our pormise to 200 Darfur refugee mothers for the International Women's Day. You enable us to fillfull our promise and help the refugeesto celebrate that great Day. Thank you so much for your support and for protecting and empoweringwomen.
"It's summer in Chad so the children take on the responsibility of gathering firewood which is an all day trip. Their journey is exhausting and dangerous as they fight extreme winds, 107 degree temperatures and bandits. The need to decrease firewood gathering trips is necessary for their safety and their families. In addition to harsh weather and environmental challenges, there has been a serious water shortage. The women and their families who survive daily in these conditions are so brave and true warriors of what the human spirit can do.
The safe stoves program helps reduce the trips for firewood and also helps with environmental conservation issues. Darfur Women Network provided 200 safe stoves to refugee mothers in the camps on International Women's Day 2017 as a gift. The Darfur Women Network provided Darfur refugee women who produce safe stoves in the campwith opportuntiy to generate income as gift as well to celebrate International Women's Day.
We pledge to continue empowering these women and their communities. Thank you to all of our supporters who are directly impacting the lives of so many. Without your help, it would be a daunting task. We ask that those of you who are new to our organization please take time to read more about us and see what you can do to help!"
Our plan is to have for every stove provided, DWN also donates 3 trees to be planted in or around the camps. However, the shortages of water, hot weather, and wind make it difficult for us to talk to the refugees bout planting trees. You will find video showsthe suffering ofthe refugees to reflect on our privilege
