Jan Grarup | Darfur | And Then There Was Silence PORTFOLIO

Posted by admin | Consequences by NOOR Project,Jan Grarup,Videos | Sunday 29 November 2009 1:12 am

Since 2004 at least 300,000 people have died in Darfur, Sudan, the victims of fighting, slaughter, starvation, malnutrition and disease. Two to three million people have been forced from their homes to wander a landscape withered by drought. Widely seen as a genocide perpetrated by the Janjaweed, armed partisans from the mostly Afro-Arab herding tribes in the north, upon the non-Muslim Fur, Zaghawa and Masalit farmers, the fighting in Darfur is about scarcity as much as ethnicity. As U.N. Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon told The Washington Post, the conflict in Darfur “grew at least in part from desertification, ecological degradation and a scarcity of resources, foremost among them water.”

A silent genocide. 2004-2009

His name is Dahir Farah Warsame, and he is 70 years old. When the family’s camels started to die from the lack of water, the family got very scared. When the camels cannot survive, then they know the drought is very bad. They left Ethiopia to go to Somalia where they thought the situation would be better. That was not the case.

They were more than 30 days on the road walking towards better conditions, with the consequence that Dahir got sick and is now dying of his illness. His oldest daughter is trying to make him a bit more comfortable as he is lying on the ground, dying slowly. Their attempt to reach safety did not work. Drought and sickness has taken another toll. Dahir is only one of thousands dying due to the situation in the horn of Africa.
