Before we all disappear off on our Xmas breaks.... some food for thought:
UN Plan for Darfur “Not Working”
The world’s worst humanitarian crisis – 1.7m people have fled their homes and 70,000 dead since the start of the conflict
Horrific human rights violations in Darfur - Justice in a state of emergency
20,000 - 30,000 people living in squalor in refugee camps in West Darfur
“Aid Effort nowhere near enough”
Save the Children withdraw from the Sudan after the murder of 4 aid workers in 2 separate incidents
MSF worker killed and aid workers increasingly at risk in the Sudan
This is just one region in the world - the West Darfur region of the Sudan. I could easily have picked somewhere else.... Iraq perhaps?
