Humanitarian relief for Sudanese

Writing about web page http://www.wr.org/featurestories/view.asp?id=30000089

World Relief has partnered with several other relief organizations in order to bring humanitarian aid to the Sudanese in Darfur (the western region of the Sudan) who have fled their homes to refugee camps. One million people have come to these camps, ready to risk the outbreak of disease from these overcrowded areas rather than return to their homes. Relief agencies have provided the population in these camps with water, food and shelter, though more is required at this time.
Violence started in early 2003 when rebel groups attacked government buildings, and in return, the government attacked villages supposedly linked to the rebel groups. These attacks have reached horrific levels, to the point of accused genocide. The United States and the United Nations have put pressure on the Sudanese government to put an end to the violence, to which Sudanese government officials have conceded.
