News of the troubling conditions in Sudan's region of Darfur have not been commanding news headlines as they once did in 2004, but the decrease of their presence in the media is certainly not a signal of recovery. Darfur is still facing a crisis of extreme political instability, and hardship has become the daily reality for hundreds. The number of displaced people now makes up a third of Darfur's population, and this week we wanted to highlight our organization's effort in alleviating at least one hardship in these people's lives.
Since the first delivery of 200 stoves to IDP (internally displaced people) camps, InStove has helped feed 80,000 children daily in school feeding programs. In the following video our co-founder and executive director, Fred Colgan, speaks about his trip to Darfur last December and how the presence of InStove has since affected the lives of refugees.
