The U.S. Committee for Refugees has launched a campaign to raise public awareness about the humanitarian crisis in Sudan. Sudan has been engaged in a civil war for the past 17 years, which has resulted in nearly 2 million deaths from war-related famine, disease and casualties. Four million people (nearly 80%) of the southern Sudanese population has been forced to flee their home at one time or another.
By launching a national campaign, USCR hopes to activate Americans and generate grass-roots support for an appropriate U.S. government response to humanitarian needs in Sudan and U.S. leadership to energize ongoing peace negotiations.
USCR's campaign includes a national speaking tour by executive director Roger Winter and the release of a paper, Follow the Women and the Cows: Personal Stories of Sudan's Uprooted People, which reveals the devastation caused by Sudan's civil war by telling the personal stories of more than 20 individuals and their families.
