DARFUR FAST FOR LIFE | WHO WE ARE
Darfur Fast For Life is an initiative launched by a group of people who stand in solidarity with the innocent and starving victims of genocide in Southern Sudan. On April 27, we will begin fasting to help turn the world's eyes and conscience towards the 4.7 million people who are now facing starvation, and, to inspire our leaders around the world to work towards creating respect for the human rights everywhere.
You can join by participating in water-only and/or “refugee rations” fasts to bring attention to the immediate humanitarian crisis in Darfur created by the expulsion of aid organizations by the government of Sudan.
We call on President Obama, international leaders and any person of influence for the immediate restoration of all aid services and unimpeded access for aid workers to the refugee population, as well as a credible process to bring lasting peace and justice to Sudan.
You can make a difference. Please join us today at fastdarfur.org
