Dear donors and friends, December 1st,2014
On behalf of Darfur Women Network (DWN) and the refugee women and girls who received safe stoves in August 2014, I would like to invite you to join our year-end-campaign to raise money to protect and empower more refugee women and girls.
Your support helped us to form production groups of refugee women to produce safe stove to sell to us in order to distribute the stove with no cost to women in the camp. The group of women strive to collect the raw materials to build stoves. They have to search for mud, donkeys’ dong, and water. Then, they transfer the ingredients to the production location on their heads and their donkeys.
Your support of this project positively impacted the survivors of Darfur genocide in their refugees’ camp in Chad in many ways.
Please watch this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Te4s8Otad8) to see how you made a difference. During December, I will send weekly reports to discuss your impact on the cause that you are passionate about and supported.
We are also thankful for our partnership with GlobalGiving for their great service and connection.
