Sven Torfinn

Gereida, South Darfur, SUDAN

One of the remaining trees standing on the desolate landscape outside a camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs). The immediate environment around the IDP refugee camps is changing rapidly due to the constant demand for firewood. Additional pressure is placed on the surrounding resources since people collecting wood do not want to venture far from the camps for fear of being attacked or raped by roaming militants. There are about 120,000 displaced people living in and around Gereida. Their living conditions are very basic and they are entirely dependant on provisions distributed by international humanitarian aid agencies.
