Seeking Empathy — A One Month Refugee Diet

For most in the United States, November is a month to give thanks. On Thanksgiving Day, we gather at our homes and enjoy great food and the company of loved ones. Refugees in and from Darfur have been deprived of a home; many of their loved ones have been killed; and they lack enough of the basics, such as food and water. In solidarity with all of the displaced from Darfur, SGN teammates Jeremiah Forest and Eric Angel will participate on a month-long fast, matching their diets to the ones of refugees we have recently visited in the desert. They will write daily journals and regularly upload pictures and video, sharing their experience.

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.
