Guisma’s eyes have seen what no child should ever see. Her home was destroyed. Brothers and sisters died. Most of her life lived as a refugee, with little hope for a safe and nurturing future — but Guisma still smiles. Guisma is Darfur, bombed and oppressed — but still beautiful and resilient. You have the opportunity to participate in creating a better future for her and all of Darfur. By participating, you shine a light on Guisma and Darfur’s road to peace.
The story is based on information from Darfuri family now living as refugees. The animated images are inspired by drawings by Darfuri refugee children.
Peace, Protection, and Justice for Guisma and all innocent civilians in Darfur is the goal, and conditions on the ground is the only measuring stick. By “Liking” the campaign, This is Darfur, you promise to work to build a road to peace for Guisma and Darfur.
Didn’t we take care of Darfur years ago? Isn’t it more important to deal with the North-South succession? Why Darfur, again? Why Darfur, now?
Our newest online zine weaves together 100 photos, videos, quotes, and journals from our 9th i-ACT Expedition that answers these questions. As media attention focuses elsewhere and the movement experiences burnout, it is increasingly important to remind ourselves and our community that Darfur remains an ongoing genocide. A genocide that affects individuals who are just like you and me.
