Dear Friend:

"A state of bare survival and little hope."

That is how one Global Impact charity describes the bleak existence of the 2.5 million forced from their homes due to the conflict in Darfur. These unwilling nomads fled burning homes and looted villages, walking miles to seek the scant protection of refugee camps.

Life is cruel amid the landscape of tents: Starvation and diseases are rampant, and sanitation is poor. Those who venture outside the camps risk being beaten, raped or murdered. The faces of those who survive from day to day are stunning portraits of fear, sadness and loss.

Despite a recent peace agreement, the conflict rages on and refugees continue to stream into camps in western Sudan and neighboring countries. Four years into the crisis and with no resolution in sight, the people of Darfur need your help. Your contribution to the Global Impact Darfur Crisis Fund will send immediate resources to refugee camps across Darfur.

A single donation:

  • Funds multiple charities—renowned organizations including CARE, International Rescue Committee, Save the Children and U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

  • Provides basic needs like food, shelter and clean water; immunizes against the spread of disease.

  • Tells millions of men, women and children that they have not been forgotten.
With your support, the Darfur Crisis Fund offers hope to those enduring a grim existence. Please give today.

Sincerely,
Renée Acosta
President and CEO, Global Impact
