Restore 2100: a Necessary Campaign
By Gabriel Stauring
Tomorrow we finally fly from N’djamena to eastern Chad and begin visiting refugee camps we first came to ten years ago. It is not a simple, one-sided story, but surprisingly, in some key areas, refugees are worse off today than they were when I first visited them. Nutrition is the most important, immediate issue they are confronting today.
This is why we are today launching the RESTORE 2100 campaign. During this campaign that will go for as long as needed, we are asking the international community, and in particular the U.S. Government, to immediately restore food rations to Darfuri refugees to the World Food Program minimum standard of 2100 calories per person, per day.
