The escalating violence that has gripped Darfur in recent weeks has forced over 100,000 civilians to flee their homes and villages. Oxfam has launched a response aimed at reaching more than 90,000 people with critical humanitarian aid.

More than 65 per cent of refugees surveyed by Oxfam fear they may not be able to go back to Syria despite desperately wanting to return. There is an urgent need for Geneva peace process to be kick-started as well as improved response from donor countries to UN’s humanitarian appeal.

While yesterday’s ceasefire is a sign of political progress, efforts to support the more than 50,000 South Sudanese refugees in Uganda remain grossly under resourced, and host communities are being pushed to the breaking point.

The Geneva II Conference, which opens today, must deliver real change in the lives of ordinary Syrians. Worldwide development organization Oxfam calls for increased participation of women and civil society organizations in peace process.
