In the Air, Over Africa

As I am writing this, Chris and I are onboard an Air France plane to Chad. We are over Northern Africa, about two hours away from landing.

We have a busy next couple of days in N’djamena coming up. We have to connect with the different agencies and organizations that will make it possible for us to get to where we want to get, the camps on the border with Darfur. We made some initial contacts through email, but some of it will have to be done in person. Three of the main contacts we have to make are the UNHCR, WFP, and the government of Chad. Some of the major NGOs working in the camps also have offices in N’djamena, so we’ll go visit.

They have not stopped feeding me in these flights. I guess I can use the extra stored fat to take me through the leaner days ahead.


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.
