War Child Aids Children in Darfur

War Child Aids Children in Darfur

The grave situation in Darfur doesn’t show any signs of getting better anytime soon. Four hundred thousand people are dead, millions have been forced from their homes and reports of unthinkable atrocities continually surface.

 

Is there something we can do to help the people of Darfur?

 

War Child is an award-winning charity dedicated to providing humanitarian assistance to war-affected children in Darfur and around the world. The organization provides opportunities and long term solutions, focusing on education, children’s rights, poverty and ultimately self reliance. They work in partnership with local people and organizations to empower children and their communities.

 

Darfur’s traumatized population currently seeks nothing more than survival, but when the fighting stops and people return to their homes, they must begin the monumental task of rebuilding. It will be the younger generation who will carry the burden.

 

War Child’s efforts in Darfur equip young people with the skills to both survive the current horror and cope with the difficult process of recovery. Classes teach conflict resolution, civic engagement, violence prevention and profitable trades, such as masonry and construction.

 

Yes, there is something we can do for the people of Darfur. We can help a generation growing up with brutality not only survive the war, but thrive in their post-war environment. Contributions equip the children of Darfur for the peace that will come one day.

 

War Child encourages people to get involved. They accept donations at their website and appreciate friending on Facebook, MySpace and YouTube.
