Overview

In February 2004, the International Rescue Committee deployed an emergency response team to Chad to support Sudanese refugees fleeing violence in Darfur. Since then, Chad has hosted 250,000 Sudanese refugees as the brutal conflict continues.

Through the provision of heatlh and other vital service, the IRC supports refugees and local communities alike.
