Missing…

I miss my family. My wife, Zahara, has been sending me text messages to our satellite phone and e-mails to the one account we download now and then.

I’ve been away for a week now. It is the first time in four years that I miss Mimi’s soccer game. Zahara told me that she scored the last goal of the season, and her team went undefeated. Esa es mi hija! You should see Gabo (only 2 and half years old) play! People tell me that he’s going to make me some money :)

Martin and S told us that during the violence in Darfur, many families became separated, with family members scattered between different camps. There are too many children alone that, when asked about their family, they answer, “back in Darfur.” That can mean one of two things, either they are in another camp, or they are dead.

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.
