Background

According to reports a million people have fled their homes and some 10 -30,000 have been killed since the conflict started last year. The displaced have fled their destroyed villages for camps in Darfur's main towns but there is not enough food, water or medicine. Many have also crossed the border into neighbouring Chad who is struggling to help the scores of refugees. With the recent onset of heavy rains food, water and medicines are running low in the refugee camps. More relief goods and medical supplies have to be airlifted to the affected area.
