As the conflict in Sudan continues, thousands of lives have been taken and millions of people are displaced from their homes. Among those displaced are innocent children, some of whom have been separated from their parents or guardians.
Many of these displaced Darfuian Refugees have fled to neighboring countries like Ethiopia. This is where our support begins. We focus on displaced youth who have been brave enough to make it across the border. We meet them right in the camp and provide the necessities they need. In many cases, we successfully sponsor the immigration process to permanently relocate refugees to the comforts of Canada.
Every Donation Helps
Our organization is founded by Mr. Abdurahim Abdulaziz, a Darfurian refugee who experienced the struggle first hand. Your donation is carried from and delivered by Abdurahim personally while our community grows.
Abdurahim has traveled from his new home in Canada, back to the border of Ethiopia to personally care for the crossing children. He has a team of people helping him and sees to it that every penny of the much-needed resources reaches these vulnerable children.
Unlike larger organizations, ODRI does not use donations for overhead expenses or salaried employees. Each and every penny is used to fund travel, food, and other supplies.
