For many refugees 2009 will be their 6th year living in a desperate situation where their tents cannot shield them from the sun, rain, or wind of the harsh desert landscape. It will be filled with months of struggling to make rations last. And long, hard days of waiting to see if the international community does the right thing. Will it be the year that their hope disappears because we have failed?
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can change the way the world responds to genocide. We are all part of the Global Community called Humanity. We are all responsible.
In this new year, SGN will bring you more frequent updates – videos, photos and blog entries – from the refugees and our team members. Check out the first of many i-ACTzine issues in 2009.
