CAFOD launches emergency appeal for Darfur and Chad
Comment Email Print
¬†The ongoing crisis in Darfur, Sudan is getting much worse, and has spread into neighbouring Chad. As the number of people in desperate need increases, CAFOD has launched an emergency appeal to support their work in the region. The conflict ≠ one of the world's worst humanitarian crises - has killed more than 200,000 people to date. Three million people are affected, of which more than two million have been forced to flee their homes and are reliant on aid to survive. CAFOD has been in Darfur from the outset of this crisis in 2004, working through ACT/Caritas ≠ a network of faith-based and Sudanese aid agencies providing shelter, safe water and sanitation, as well as building health clinics and schools for people living in the camps. More than 225,000 people have now fled into neighbouring Chad, worsening its own internal armed conflict and destabilising an already volatile region. CAFOD is appealing for support for their vital work helping the people of Sudan and Chad, and ask you to keep the men, women and children affected by this crisis in your prayers.
