We want to start by expressing our sincere gratitude to everyone involved in the Clooney Foundation for Justice's inaugural 'Albie Awards.' We cannot thank you enough for the work you do and the light you have shone on the brave Darfuri refugee community in their fight for justice. We also want to thank the wonderful guests who attended the event to show their support for the awardees, using their voices to amplify their work and their stories. A special thank you to Dua Lipa and Nadia Murad for presenting the Justice for Survivors award to iACT.

Words cannot express just how meaningful it was for all of us at iACT to spend time with Oumda and to see him be given the platform he deserves to share his story and speak on behalf of his community - an opportunity that is all too rare for refugees.

Also rare for refug
