Sometimes it is hard to know what to do about the situation in Darfur. It is complicated and often we feel helpless. Aid relief is important. Helping people in the region to understand there is international condemnation for their suffering is also important. Ultimately, any solution has to take into account the international geo-political scene and engage activists in raising awareness. This is true not only in Darfur but in other areas of the world as well. Mary Lee Morrison

Well, there is certainly no question about the fact that something needs to be done for the people of Darfur, but I, too, wonder what we can do.  I suppose perhaps most importantly, we must educate those around us about what is happening in Darfur.  I know that I was not aware of the situation until someone educated me.

I agree that knowledge and awareness need to be shared with others.  We may feel that we can not do enough to make a difference but making others aware is part of the process of change.  Wether we can donate time, money or supplies is not important as long as we show we care.
