Tonight thank God it's them instead of you

Before we all disappear off on our Xmas breaks.... some food for thought:

UN Plan for Darfur “Not Working”

The world’s worst humanitarian crisis – 1.7m people have fled their homes and 70,000 dead since the start of the conflict

Horrific human rights violations in Darfur - Justice in a state of emergency

20,000 - 30,000 people living in squalor in refugee camps in West Darfur

Aid Effort nowhere near enough

Save the Children withdraw from the Sudan after the murder of 4 aid workers in 2 separate incidents

MSF worker killed and aid workers increasingly at risk in the Sudan

This is just one region in the world - the West Darfur region of the Sudan. I could easily have picked somewhere else.... Iraq perhaps?

We can help to make a difference.....

    just a small note on the power of your and some of the other brilliant blogs I have been reading over recent weeks.

    1. I have bought my wife a brood of chickens for Christmas
    2. I've just donated about £25 to the Band Aid charity by having a Christmas lyrics pop quiz in my office this week.

    Neither of which I would have dreamed of doing without reading some of these posts.

    a genuine "thanks".
