  • Up to 400,000 people have died due as a result of direct attacks and conflict induced malnutrition and disease. The vast majority of these have been women, children and civilian men.
    More than 3 million people have been displaced and are living in IDP camps
    More than 350,000 people are deprived of humanitarian support due to the threat of attack faced by aid workers. Thousands starve each month due to the Sudanese government impeding humanitarian aid efforts
    A further 4 million Darfuri residents are dependant on limited international humanitarian assistance. The violence is now spilling onto neighbouring Eastern Chad.
  • April 2003 — Generally regarded as the beginning date of the genocide in Darfur.
    May 2004 — Physicians for Human Rights investigation in refugee camps along the Chad/Sudan border concluded that genocide was unfolding in Sudan
    January 2005 — United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Darfur found that the government of Sudan provided weapons to pro-government militias in Darfur and that “government forces and militias conducted indiscriminate attacks, including killing of civilians, torture, enforced disappearances, destruction of villages, rape and other forms of sexual violence, pillaging and forced displacement, throughout Darfur. The commission recommended a referral to the ICC and named 51 suspects to be considered.
    March 2005 — The UN Security Council adopted resolution 1593 referring the situation in Darfur since 1 July 2002 to the ICC. 
    December 2005 — Human Rights Watch reported: “The Sudanese government at the highest levels is responsible for widespread and systematic abuses in Darfur.” September 2006 — President Bush speech to the UN identifying the "unspeakable violence" and "atrocities" in Darfur as genocide.

  • Government neglect has left the people throughout Sudan poor and voiceless. In February 2003, the non-Arab ethnic groups of Darfur launched an uprising against the Kartoum government. The government responded by implementing their campaign of genocide, enlisting the help of Arab militia in Darfur called the Janjaweed.
    The dispute is racial, not religious: Muslim Arab Sudanese are killing Muslim black Sudanese.
    A typical situation is this: The Janjaweed will enter a village on horse or camel back. They then set about causing as much mayhem and terror as possible: destroying houses and buildings, shooting the men, etc. The village is generally destroyed, families dispersed and separated, most killed. Those who manage to escape then attempt the long journey to an IDP (Internally displaced persons) camp.
    very few functioning villages left in the Darfur region as most of them have been systematically attacked in this way.
