Genocide in Darfur

Posted in Humanity, NEWS with tags , , , on April 8, 2010 by Mijiza Zeyzey

Darfur, Sudan, is a city in conflict that is seeing its people become displaced throughout the Sudanese borders and refugee throughout the world.  Once families flee their homes they are forced to continue to flee. If they are lucky, they find themselves safe in a new land. The road is never easy. Although, they might find themselves safe in a new land the lost of their homeland is always heartfelt.

Over 2.5 million civilians have been displaced and over 400,000 have been killed. The fighting between the government of Sudan, the Janjawid (an allied militia), and rebel groups has made civilians victims of outrageous human rights violations. Support is needed to stop the violence and stop the genocide.
