Darfur, eastern Chad and the equally anarchic north of the Central African Republic are roamed by militia of all kinds, the abduction , beatings and murder of humanitarian aid workers is increasingly commonplace. The region is now so dangerous that six aid groups temporarily withdrew from eastern Chad, leaving 37,000 displaced people without assistance.
People cannot leave the camps because of the rampant violence and because so many of their homelands have been occupied by Arab tribes from elsewhere. If the surge in violent attacks upon aid workers and their compounds continue, more NGO’s will be forced to withdraw. More than 3 million people have been displaced in Darfur, Chad and CAR. Most are women and children. What will happen to them?
