Hello supporters and friends,


The Darfur Women Network (DWN), the clients, and our staff wish you a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving!  


We are thankful for your generous donations that helped make change among the survivors of Darfur genocide. We hope you are all surrounded with peace, joy, and love during this joyous holiday. Happy Holidays to all our friends, supporters, and volunteers!


Unfortunately, the rain has stopped in Chad. Therefore, the valleys are completely dry so the refugees must depend on our drinking water wells. During raining season, the refugees get their drinking water from their valleys that stored the water from the rain.


Your generous donations have made positive impact on our refugees in Touloum camp. Now, we have safety tools to ensure that our volunteers can clean up their wells with no worries about their safety. They have helmet, plastic boots, safety belts, strong strings, torches, and gloves.


DWN are thinking about innovative idea to keep the drinking water well clean during rainy season.


If anyone has idea or suggestions, please let DWN know! t

Hello our dear friends,


We, the Darfur Women Network, DWN, and our clients, and our staff are grateful for your strong support to our water project.  In our last report, we shared with you that we purchased and sent safety tools and  to our volunteer team in Darfur refugees camp in Chad.


In June2019, the rainy season has started, but it is still raining. The refugees get their drinking water from valleys during rainy season. All the wells had been buried. The reason behind the burying of the wells has been due to the rainfall that washed sand from highland to the lowland one where the wells were dug.

Now, our volunteers are ready to clean drinking wells. Their safety tools are available in the camp. then, we will work hard to enable the refugees to drink clean water. This year, we ensure the safety of the volunteers who enter 20 meters into the wells.

We appeal to you to continue your kindness support to donate to enable us to purchase food for the volunteers to do their work. The food we need to provide to our volunteers are meals and tea. Now, we are working hard to complete our preparation to achieve our goals (drinking water). Please, help us with your generous donations to increase the water resources.

Hello our friends,


We, the Darfur Women Network, DWN, our beneficiaries, and staff are grateful for your strong support to our water project. Today, we are excited to share with you your positive impact of your donation on the survivors of Darfur genocide in the refugees’ camp in Chad.  

Your donations have helped us to purchase food to our volunteers to clean up the wells to provide drinking water to the refugees.

On April 20th, we were able to send the safety tools, plastic boots, helmets, gloves, touch, cords, and safety belts. The refugee families always go to get water. Some they have donkeys and some borrow donkeys from their friends, some get five gallon containers on women’s and girls’ heads. They use water for drinking, cooking, little water for cleaning few dishes, and little water for personal hygiene.  

The last cleaning up wells was in April 20th, the team was on safety tools, we provided food that was cooked in the camp. The volunteers were sent down to 25 meters safely.


However, there are two cleaned wells collapsed. Now, we renewed the project  to provide more water to 30000 refugee in the camp and safety tools to support our volunteers from the refugees to clean-up wells to provide water to the refugees.

Would you please , check the link below to see your impact of your donation on the survivors of Darfur genocide in the camp in Chad, you  will see the risk of cleaning wells before your donation. Then, you will see how your eliminate the risk by providing safety tools.

Hello, our friends,

 On behalf of Darfur Women Network, I would like to thank your strong support. Today, I would like to share with you that our refugees in Darfur refugees camp are in serious situation. They are suffering starvation because the World Food Program has refused to give them food since August 2018. Despite they are living in desert area and have no income.

We need you to help us with two things,

Firstly, I appeal to you to allow us to use the money you donated in 2019, to use it in our water project ($650-15%) to use it to purchase  food for children and disable people who are suffering malnutrition and elderly who couldn’t move due to starvation instead. We also, need your support to sign our petition below.

Please read more information and sign the petition by checking this link            



Eventually, We are grateful for your support and we are looking for your permission to save lives in the refugees camp in Chad.

In 2018,with your strong support we provided over a thousand refugee from Darfur, whom are the survivors of the Darfur genocide in the camps in Chad with drinking water. You touched refugee with your kindness and your concern about their lives. Your generous contribution to provide safety tool to save the lives of volunteers who get in more than 20 meter in the well to clean them up the only sources of drinking water for 7000 families.  

As the end of the yearapproaches, we want to take a moment to inviteyou to join us to make donation to help us to ship the safety tool and to provide food for the volunteers to clean up more well and to provide drinking water as a gift with compassion.
