Summary

DOHS will use your donations to buy --in El Geneina, Darfur-- blankets, food, clothes, sleeping mats and tarpaulins for people displaced by attacks on January 16-19, 2021, July 25, 2020 and late December 2019 in El Geneina, Misterei and Kerending. One of our Directors had already visited with Misterei displaced and was in touch with those in the Kerending camps when the massive attack on greater El Geneina area began. In June 2020, DOHS distributed blankets and mats to over 750 people.

Challenge

The Board and membership of DOHS are from Darfur, Sudan. On January 16 through 19, 2021, the greater El Geneina area of West Darfur State suffered a massive militia attack. This included the two Kerening Camps, which had last been attacked in late December 2019. And the displaced from the July 25, 2020 attack on nearby Misterei still need our help. Our director has been on-site and is working with displaced leaders to learn what the displaced most need. Check back here for updates.

Solution

Your donations will be administered by the DOHS Board in the US and our members in El Geneina; it will be used to buy food, tarpaulins, mats, blankets from El Geneina businesses. So your money will both help the displaced and the local economy. And since our Board and membership are from the area of concern and have had at at least one member or Director there for many months now, we can best get the displaced what they most want, even in catastrophic times like these.

Long-Term Impact

Blankets, tarpaulins, food and mats protect against exposure and the illnesses that often come with it. With health comes more ability to plan and act. Also, since DOHS is buying these mats and blankets in El Geneina, West Darfur State, Sudan, your money helps the local economy. Our contacts on-site have told us the displaced suffer from rain and cold, particularly the senior people and the children, especially at night since they have no place to sleep and nothing to cover themselves.
