How much does LIFE cost in Darfur?

The essentials of life in Darfur are far different from the “essentials” in America. If you are in a club supporting the refugees of Darfur, Sudan, your $7 a month is providing planeloads of relief supplies including “Life Packs” that consist of the following items. You might be amazed to see how little it costs in U.S. Dollars to provide life to a Darfur refugee…
