We need humanitarian aid to be allowed into the Sudan before it becomes the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. The second thing, “is for the government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop raping them and stop starving them. That’s all we ask. - George Clooney

Stop the violence in Abyei and Darfur
Dear President Obama,
Despite your efforts to help bring peace to Sudan, we are seeing escalating violence on the border between North and South Sudan, particularly in the region of Abyei. In Darfur over the past few months, the UN has also documented aerial bombardment of civilians and burning of villages with tens of thousands driven from their homes.
Based on recent images from the Satellite Sentinel Project and worrisome reports from sources on the ground, I am writing to implore you to take swift action
Save Darfur Coalition.
