The situation in Darfur in Sudan has fallen off the mainstream media radar as of late, despite the fact that the situation in that part of the world remains fairly desperate. In February 2005, Human Rights Watch researchers Dr. Annie Sparrow and Olivier Bercault visited Darfur to assess a number of issues in the refugee camps in the region. In doing so, thy collected numerous drawings from children in the region that documented their own experiences during the recent months. On this site, visitors can view these drawings, many of which depict these experiences (such as the bombings by Sudanese government forces) in harrowing detail. Additionally, visitors can also listen to Sparrow talk about her mission and work in and around the area.
