Our Role Protecting Human Rights in Darfur

We have given assistance to more than 300,000 people affected by the conflict in Darfur by providing food aid, water supplies, and health care, as well as agricultural tools and seeds to help people maintain self-sufficiency and protect their human rights.

The Human rights we are protecting are:

  • Article 1- We are all born free and equal
  • Article 2- Don't discriminate
  • Article 3- The right to life
  • Article 14- The right to seek a safe place to live

Our Authority Addressing the Mission

We have the U.N to protect them, because they are a part of America. They have the duty to aid the people who are in need of help. With the U.N's support we are able to get and dispense supplies necessary for the people in Darfur to survive. The U.N. has been a great supporter for us to have during this crisis to aid the people in Darfur.
