Projects in Chad
Since 2003, the government of Sudan has conducted a violent counter-insurgency operation against rebel groups in Darfur. As a result of the conflict, more than two million people have been displaced and approximately 450,000 have lost their lives. In recent years the violence has spilled into Chad and threatens to exacerbate the fragile political environment of that country. Since 2004, American Jewish World Service has funded vital organizations working with displaced people who have fled violence and persecution and are now living in camps in Sudan and Chad. AJWS supports emergency and general health care services, water and sanitation programs, and education services. Due to fears of harassment, bureaucratic blockades and closure of essential programs, our partners have requested that we exclude their names from AJWS publications.
