Fatima Ahmed, MADRE's partner in Sudan, relayed this message: "I am just back from Darfur. It was a very successful trip. On behalf of all the women and children I have met I thank you for this great effort which made so many smile."
Vivian Stromberg, MADRE's Executive Director, added: "MADRE's donations will be used by women and families currently living in refugee camps far from their homes and belongings and without sufficient food, water, or basic health care. The clothing, blankets, and sheets MADRE provided will help women care for themselves and their families as they confront harsh weather and illnesses such as meningitis-which remains one of the leading causes of death in the camps-and malaria, which will become worse now that the rainy season has begun."
