IDPs Want Action Not “Tourists”

Many of Darfur’s internally displaced persons (IDPs) appear to be growing disheartened at the international community’s response (or lack thereof) to their crisis.

Time and time again, foreign envoys to Sudan arrive in Darfur, assess the situation, and leave as quickly as they came.

The IDPs do not want “tourists”. They want people who will witness the suffering and do something about it when they return home.

Envoys come and go – yet the conflict rages on.
