Darfur’s Mothers

This past Sunday, we celebrated Mother’s Day.

Stop Genocide Now has gathered together testimonies of Darfurian mothers.

Some quotes which stood out –

Sometimes…I get together with friends to tell stories about Darfur, about the way life used to be…we keep telling stories, until, sometimes, we weep.

My children are my only hope.

I thank God for everything. It is part of life. We are still alive.

Please always put us in front of you, don’t let us fall behind.

The mother behind the first quote? Fourteen-year-old Farha – caretaker of three siblings.
