Water Distribution 2023
Dear Darfur Women Network Family,
On behalf of Darfur Women Network, Inc, DWN, would like to express our gratitude for your generous donation and your passionate support. With your generosity and your support during this difficult time, the DWN has been able to provide essential services to the refugees from Darfur in Touloum camp in Chad.
With your contribution, DWN and its volunteers have provided drinking water and water containers for the survivors of genocide in Darfur, who are residents of the Darfur refugees’ camp in Chad. After a rainy season, our volunteers in the camp clean up the buried drinking water wells in the camp for years. However, this year, DWN has the plan to provide 1000 families with water containers (5 gallons).
We distributed 680 water containers; two water containers were given to each family. Now, we are looking forward to working with you to achieve our goals which are meeting the need of 1000 families, are you ready to help refugees from Darfur in refugees camp in Chad?
Why are water containers important?
The refugees retrieve water from wells in water containers. They use the same water container as water storage in the shelter. In the camp, there are no jobs and no income. 85% of the refugees are women and children. Thus, they can’t afford to purchase water containers. They have to melt the broken plastic water containers to weld the container holes. Water containers are still needed.
The fighting between two armed forces that was started on April 15th, is still going on.
• At least 427 people have been killed and over 3,700 injured due to the conflict.
• Prices of essential items are sharply increasing due to shortages.
• At least 11 health facilities have been attacked and many are no longer functional in Khartoum and Darfur States.
• Civilians are fleeing areas affected by fighting, including to Chad, Egypt, and South Sudan.
• Several humanitarian organizations have evacuated or relocated their staff from locations where operations are not currently feasible.
Displacement of civilians has been reported in the capital of Sudan and in Darfur.
We hope for peace and stability soon and assess the need of people and work with our volunteers to serve our people who are affected by the consequence of the fighting. We praying for the safety of our volunteers, beneficiaries, our guard, and the women’s center. We don’t have information due to the absence of the Internet and communication as well as the insecurity situation.
We appeal to you to extend a helping hand to provide food, medicine, and relief supplies for our people in Sudan. We ask you to pray that God lifts this disaster from our country and people as soon as possible, and we appreciate all your support. May God bless your heart.
