After spending some time with students and teachers at the one of the schools in Camp Djabal, we gave them a book of letters written by a school in Georgia as part of their Save Darfur Club. We also told them about the Darfur Dream Team Sister School Program. Here are the two letters we were given to bring home with us (with minor spelling and grammar errors corrected).

Dear all members of Save Darfur Club,
We are the family of New Sudan School co-education for basic at camp of Djabal in Eastern Chad.
We hope that all the family of Save Darfur Club is very well and that your health is very good.
We send to your our greetings and regards. If you ask about us now, we are well, but have lost our homes. We were Sudanese citizens, but now we are refugees and this is a very bad thing.
Our friends in U.S.A in Save Darfur Club, I know you are doing very hard work so as to help us in the camp. This is a very good feeling.
Thank you very much for your letters.
