Iriba is a small desert town in eastern Chad, close to the border with Sudan. It is home for humanitarian organizations that serve three refugee camps and over 57,000 displaced Darfuris since 2004. When the Darfuris first arrived, they were welcomed with open arms by the Chadian people in this region, but they did not think they were coming to stay. As time continues, it becomes more obvious that the local environment just cannot support those numbers.
