[Video] New Arrivals from Darfur

Editor’s Note: This blog originally appeared on iactivism.org

i-ACT visited the “new arrival” area in refugee camp Goz Amer. Over 2,000 people have been living in improvised huts since May 2013, having escaped extreme violence in Darfur. They now join the over 300,000 refugees that have been living in camps in eastern Chad for almost ten years.

Gabriel co-founded Stop Genocide Now in 2005, which gave birth to i-ACT in 2009.

He became involved in the situation in Darfur out of a sense of personal responsibility. He believes the power of community and compassion, combined with personal empowerment, can bring about meaningful change.
