Organization For Darfurian Refugees and Immigrants

Organization For Darfurian Refugees and Immigrants

It is our mission to provide relief to refugees from the western region of Sudan known as Darfur. The region has been in a state of humanitarian crisis since 2003. The complex problems in the region have created numerous political, economic, and social problems for its civilians. Due to these issues millions of people have been displaced and now require our help as there is no end in sight. We help this displaced population in numerous ways through fundraising and volunteer work. Using our funds we help the displaced relocate to safety and eventually help them find a permanent home.

Once these refugees cross the border into Ethiopia, Egypt, Israel, and other countries they are sent to refugee camps where they will still require a lot of help to progress their living conditions. We provide basic necessities such as food, water, shelter, and sanitation facilities. Once the basic needs are met we also help refugees receive a primary school education as well as help place them into highschools or colleges in Ethiopia. If a refugee is located in Egypt or Israel we work to get them a sponsor in Canada as they are not able to return to Sudan.

Every day we work hard to provide Darfurian refugees in need with the basic necessities for daily life as well as provide them advocacy and education. The cost of this can be quite high and any donations can help. We fundraise in numerous ways to help ensure there is adequate funding for those who need it. The ODRI has built a strong relationship with religious charities that helps to keep this cause in the public eye. There are many ways to contribute other than through these charities. You can donate directly through the website, volunteer your time for one of our events or sign up to become an advocate for our cause. If you have any questions please contact us today to find out more about how you can help!
