Update from Darfur - Food Security & Agriculture

Darfur Women Network (DWN) is delighted to say thank you for your generous donation and endless support. Without your support, we couldn’t help some refugees to grow their own food. Now, the government and the people believe that the solution for their hunger is agriculture. 

The people in Darfur and Chad are excited to secure food for their families. DWN shares the same believe. However, most of the work at farm to feed the displaced families relies on women.

I talked to some displaced women and others and I observed the life there, I found that the culture of a husband is the head of house hold has been diminished. Women, now, are doing some jobs that have been known as a man’s jobs for hundreds of years ago.

Our Executive Director is currently in Darfur. She said that the rainy season is around the corner. Displaced people are enthusiastic to grow their own food, but they are concerned about security, finding food during the farming season, and the agriculture inputs including land.

DWN is determined to help some elderly, widows with orphans, and refugees with disability. Our volunteers are ready to help after they determine the neediest people in the camp. We are waiting for their report. Communication is difficult. One of the volunteers had to travel for two days to talk to our Executive Director.

We will share the update that we are waiting for.

Thank you so much!
