Challenge

The U.N. World Food Program reports that it is cutting food rations to Darfur by 50% due to a lack of funding. MADRE and Zenab are responding to this crisis in El Sieref and other refugee camps. Conditions are horrific: Women face a systematic campaign of gang rape; children fear for their lives; families lack even the most basic necessities, like enclosed toilets; and now they will have even less food than before.

Solution

MADRE is providing support for: • food and basic supplies; • programs to prevent gender-based sexual violence (including rape); • security and privacy for women and children; and • counseling and play therapy to traumatized children.

Long-Term Impact

MADRE’s decades-long experience has taught us that emergencies like this one will leave survivors in crisis for a long time. That’s why we’re supporting the efforts of women’s organizations to provide trauma counseling along with emergency relief.
