Hi Julio!
Mostly the kids are playing futbol (soccer) or volleyball here in the camps! We also do a lot of races with the kids. They refugees continue to prepare grains, cook, and build homes in their traditional manner. The way of taking care of many generations is also traditional. Thanks for all your support!

Hi Amanda!
Good questions! We eat mostly what we bring: tuna, granola, backpacking food, and nuts!! We sleep in UNHCR compounds and are relatively safe! Right now there is lots of rebel movement, so we are staying inside a lot. Thanks for all the love!

Hey Gabriel!

It’s me Stephanie from the Venice High School Human Rights Watch- Student Task Force. Thanks for going over there, risking your life, to bring awareness on the crimes against humanity in Darfur. Here in Los Angeles, we are trying our hardest as well. We are determined to help end this, and we’re not going down without a fight! I really hope to see you soon. I would love another Camp Darfur at Venice. Last year, it caught many students’ attention.
God Bless You!
