Our Treasurer in Darfur until late February '21

The displaced of Kerending internally displaced person camp outside of El Geneina and also the displaced from the city of Misterei, West Darfur State, Sudan are still in need of aid, so our project to help people from both groups continues. Mohamed Abdulrahman, our Treasurer, is on-site.  His attempt to consult with the displaced from the city of Misterei earelier this month had to be postponed due to security concerns. So his new schedule for January is to consult first with the displaced of the Kerending camps, then with those from the city of Misterei. 

After learning what these communities most want from us, the Board will conduct a fundraiser amongst our members via our GlobalGiving page and other online platforms.  Then, as we did last June, we will buy the goods requested in El Geneina (or within Darfur or at least Sudan if at all possible).  All donations given to us through our GlobalGiving page will be used for this effort.

Mr. Abdulrahman will remain in the area of concern until late February, 2021.

 

Fundraising update:

From May 1 through November 30, 2020 we raised $1477 on our GlobalGiving page for this project, for which GlobalGiving gave us $1392.45 after subtracting their fee.  We also raised $287.49 via donations made to our original website.  So we now have $1679.94 in hand for this project!

And for December 1 through December 28, 2020, we have raised another $155 on our GlobalGiving page for this project (it will be disbursed to us minus GG's fee in late January). 

As some of you know, all of our Board and membership are of the Darfuri diaspora in the United States, with many from the El Geneina area of Sudan.  So our organization has a personal connection to the area of concern and is best able to establish relationships with the displaced communities in and around that city.

But the situation in Darfur is still very dangerous. Over 50,000 people were newly displaced in Darfur between September 1 to November 23, 2020, according to UNAMID, the African Union - United Nations hybrid peacekeeping force due to leave the region next year (1).
