San Antonio, TX
The people of San Antonio, Texas have joined together to show our support for the people of Darfur as they face severe food shortages, inadequate access to clean water and a lack of medical care due to the actions of their own government. We fast, not because we believe we can duplicate their experience, but to raise awareness about their situation and to let them know we are fighting for them.
Many of those fasting are mothers; a common feeling expressed by them is wondering how any mother faces watching her child starve. Most of us have had a child tell us “I’m starving.” What does it feel like when this is actually true? These are the things we think about as we voluntarily choose to restrict our eating.
It is our hope that many others will join this cause, not necessarily as fasters, but as activists, people who will raise their voices to demand that the international community refuse to accept what is happening in Sudan, but instead work together to restore aid and bring peace to this country.
