History of Africare in Sudan:

Africare first assisted Sudan in 1980, with the donation of medical equipment and supplies for use by needy hospitals and clinics nationwide. During the 1990s, Africare also assisted more than 33,000 Sudanese refugees, who had fled civil war at home and sought shelter in the neighboring Central African Republic.

In 2005, Africare offered assistance to refugees in Darfur. That assistance is at the Africare-managed Gaga Refugee Camp, located just across the border in Ouaddai, eastern Chad. There, Africare provided shelter, food, medical care and other aid to 20,000 Darfurian refugees.
