Monthly registered refugees receive food distribution from the World Food Program and partners. This includes soap, vegetable oil, salt, sugar, yellow split peas, wheat cereal, and sorghum. They have been receiving these same items, when available, for seven years. When possible the refugees do supplement these meals by trading some of it or buying meat, vegetables, or fruits. This year it rained more than usual and the growing season at the local gardens is just ending now. Often the most fond memories of Darfur are of their fields make home, especially their mango and guava trees.
