New Faces in Old Places

i-ACT’s Gabriel Stuaring, James Thacher and the Little Ripples team are in eastern Chad documenting the stories of Darfuri refugees and opening the first Little Ripples’ center. This trip, i-ACT #16, coincides with the 10th anniversary of the start of the violence in Darfur and the more than 300,000 newly displaced in the region.


When I first visited these camps in 2005, both the refugees and I believed that they would be going home soon. We are now seeing a new wave of refugees caused by a new wave in violence. From the tens of thousands at the Chad border, almost 2,000 have been brought to Goz Amer refugee camp. How long will this be their home?
