Healing Adolescent Girls in Darfur (496)
Sudan / $2,000
Almost 2 million people in the three states of Darfur are refugees or internally-displaced, due to the violent conflict that began in March 2003. More than 60% of them are children under 18 years of age. In South Darfur alone, hundreds of thousands of people are seeking refuge in camps, which lack basic services and security. In order to provide the local children and adolescent girls with structure and a sense of normality, the Sudanese Popular Committee for Relief (SPCR) established nine Children Centers in three locations in South Darfur, where internally-displaced people live. 40 people were trained to organize daily, social and recreational activities for the almost 10,000 children served. Many of the children are survivors of sexual abuse, and some of them are dealing with unwanted pregnancies. Several services help these young girls heal from their experiences. At present more than 500 girls meet and encourage each other to cope and accept their often unwanted baby. We shared a Flow Fund Gift to support these activities.

Karen Refugee Center (293)
Thailand / $2,500
Sister Mary Robert Perillat runs a refugee center in Chom Bung, Thailand, close to the Burmese border. There are many Karen people without any legal documents in this area. Subject to ill-treatment and threats, the Karen people cannot travel because they might get caught by the police and sent back to Burma, so their children cannot go to school and their sick and dying cannot go to hospitals. A Flow Fund Gift was shared with the Sister's center, to provide education for children, shelters for families, food and transportation for the sick, and supplementary nourishment for children who are under-nourished. Every month a volunteer doctor visits the local villagers, and sees over 80 people. Part of this Gift is being used to pay for gas and a driver for the doctor.
