From 2003 to present day, the Sudanese Government and its proxy militia launched a violent and brutal ethnic cleansing campaign against unarmed civilians.
More than 400,000 people have died from violence, disease or malnutrition as a result of the conflict. Bombardment and blockades continue to affect the people of Darfur. As a result, survivors are displaced and flee to refugee camps or different countries. Women and children comprise 85% of camp populations. There are 12 refugee camps in Chad with populations ranging from 13,000 to 29,000 inhabitants per camp. The Darfur Women Network, Inc. targets the Touloum Refugee Camp. Touloum Camp’s population is 29,000 people. They lack basic necessities for survival and face unsafe circumstances regularly.
