#WeAreDarfur

A mosaic of people that calls for open arms in welcoming and supporting refugees everywhere.

Some of us are literally from Darfur. Others are standing in solidarity with Darfuris and all refugees and displaced people around the world that have been forced from their homes—but who continue to strive for peace, protection, and justice. Recently, the word “refugee” has been turned negative and into something to be feared. We know that refugees—children, women, and men—are only looking for hope and opportunity for a life of dignity and peace. #WeAreDarfur is a mosaic of people that calls for open arms in welcoming and supporting refugees everywhere.

iACT 33 in Chad: The Work Continues

Toward the end of January, iACT’s program associate Julia and I traveled to Chad to connect with our teammates living in the Darfuri refugee camps located in the eastern part of the country. We were there for a couple weeks, and the camps we stopped in were Am Nabak, Touloum, Iridimi, Djabal, and Goz Amer. We refer to this trip as “iACT33” because members of the iACT family, starting with our founder Gabriel Stauring, have now gone to Chad 33 times. Gabriel’s first trip was in 2005, and Katie-Jay later joined him for several visits.
