Armed conflict and mass atrocities drew the world’s attention to Darfur in 2003 and 2004.
This conflict – which the United States government characterized as genocide in 2004 – resulted in the death of perhaps 300,000 people and the displacement of millions more.
In 2009 the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for the arrest of Bashir, as well as several other government officials, and charged them with crimes against humanity.
Each day war forces thousands of families to flee their homes.
People like you, people like me.
To escape the violence, they leave everything behind – everything except their hopes and dreams for a safer future. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency believes all refugees deserve to live in safety.
