A Call for Assistance from Women in IDP Camps in Darfur

In Uncategorized by Robin

In a message directed at the international humanitarian bodies and sent to the Women’s Initiatives for distribution, women in IDP camps in North Darfur call on the United Nations and the international community as a whole – including humanitarian organisations – to recognise their plight and dispatch aid as well as spread awareness to keep this urgent conflict on the international radar.

According to partners of the Women’s Initiatives, thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) had their camps besieged and destroyed as part of a new government strategy in Sudan to isolate peace development to its own borders.

This message follows a petition delivered by IDP women leaders to the UN Security Council delegation that visited North Darfur last October.
