The stories below have been collected by Darfur Women Action Group as a way to raise awareness to the situation of women and girls in Darfur. They do not only show the horror of the mass atrocities in Darfur, but also the courage and resilience that these individuals have demonstrated in the face of the longest genocide in history.
Sharing these reports is not about us; it is about those who have been forced to live in fear because the government of Sudan’s intent is to kill – if not by bullets, by starvation, rape, blockade of medicine or psychological trauma. These Darfuris, literally stuck in Sudan or Chad, have been systematically targeted for killing, rape, and humiliation for more than 13 years. Upon reading this, we ask for your help by speaking out, spreading the word, and supporting DWAG so that we may be able to help our people by providing them with tangible, life-saving assistance. We want to bring this continuing horrific situation back to the attention of the world community. We can’t do it without you and your support.
