30,000 displaced Darfuri families in Adre, Chad given clothes, shoes, blankets, tarps by DOHS, with Zaghawa and Fur volunteers’ assistance, from March 18 through 26, 2024

We are excited to announce that our shipping container of clothes, shoes, blankets, tarps for Darfuri refugees arrived in Adre on March 14th.  From March 18th through 26th, 2024, the DOHS team, with the help of volunteers from the community, including from the Fur and Zaghawa tribes, distributed tarps, sleeping mats, blankets, clothes, and shoes to 30,000 families in Meche and Abutange refugee camps, on the western side of Adre.

Since the war began last April, the residents of both camps fled the genocide in El Geneina with just the clothes they had on and some even without any shoes on their feet.  Most live in tents, basically material from the UN stretched over a stick frame.

We would like to thank everyone who helped us complete this distribution, we couldn’t have done it without your support. We would also like to give a special shoutout to Global Giving for providing $10,000 in grants to help us complete this project.

As of now, our Adre team says the number one concern of the displaced is educational and food support (specifically for the orphans).  This is our next goal.   As always, your support is greatly appreciated.
