Darfur Fast for Life

We fast in solidarity with the hungry and starving in Darfur and for lasting peace in Sudan

We fast in solidarity with the people of Darfur

May 16, 2009 By: Pam Category: Pam Omidyar

Pam’s statement

We fast in solidarity with the people of Darfur because they do not have a choice. We fast as a personal expression of outrage at a world that has allowed the suffering of millions of innocent people. We fast because as we simply watched, Darfur’s defenseless people were forced into wretched camps where today they are facing starvation and disease. We fast because those in positions of authority who know what is right and just, could and should do more to alleviate their suffering and bring peace, protection, and justice to the people of Sudan.

We fast for Darfur’s courageous people —because we yearn for a world where human rights are respected and a life of dignity is the legacy for every man, woman and child.

    Pam – Rob and Nancy told me about your fast, so I logged on to read your blog, and it brought tears to my eyes. I don’t know that I have your strength and your courage, or that I care as much about anything (other than my children) as you do about this. You are an inspiration to me and to all of us who care about justice. Please take care of yourself. We need you strong and well – to keep fighting for all the good things. It is an honor to be your friend. With much love, Deb
