Update

Greetings! Darfur Women Network (DWN) is grateful for your support. You saved lives.

It is usually very difficult to get in contact with the volunteers stationed overseas. However, yesterday’s phone call was clear. They told me that the 30000 refugees drink water from one source, the wells that your donation helped to clean. However, it was a risky operation. DWN was worried, especially, when I watched the video and saw the risky tools they used. Despite they, put themselves in danger, but for their families and for their community. However, it will never happen again.

Without your support, we could not accomplish these goals. The donors should feel proud of the positive impacts their donations enabled.

Please join DWN to achieve their next step for their goal?

Our goal is to clean up more wells, approximately three to five wells, to safely to reduce the struggling of shortages of drinking water in the camp this year. We need your support to send the safely tools and to purchase food for the volunteers to take all the sand and wood as well as other trash from inside the well.

DWN is the only sources that has helped the survivors of Darfur genocide in Touloum Camp, in Chad with clean drinking water. They have been living in the camp since 2003. 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.

We currently need to clean up more wells to enable the refugees to reduce the suffering of shortages of water. This year, we need to ensure the safety of the volunteers who enter 20 meters into the wells.

We are excited that we purchased all the safety tools and they are ready to be sent to Chad. Now we are working hard to provide the volunteers with food.

Please help us with your generous donations to increase the water resources safely without putting anyone at risk.Please check the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtJneCviJ9g Thank you so much!
