Bridge Foundation organized several humanitarian relief flights to assist those fleeing persecution by Janjaweed militias in the Darfur region of Sudan. The Chad airlifts were part of The Darfur Project's "2007-Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment."
Bridge Foundation's primary support locations included Guereda Hospital (100 miles northeast of Abeche) and the Gaga Refugee Camp, located near the Sudanese border. The Gaga Camp is one of the largest in Chad with more than 25,000 refugees. Since fighting began in May estimates of more than 40,000 new refugees have entered camps along the Darfur border.
In response to increasing hostilities between militia groups in Sudan and Chad, Bridge Foundation has been providing lifesaving essential drugs and medical supplies to more than 175,000 Darfur refugees and some 110,000 internally displaced Chadians affected by violence along the border.
