Gratitude

This blog was originally posted on iactivism.org as part of iACT’s 22nd expedition to eastern Chad.

IMG_0954Happy Thanksgiving from eastern Chad! We are so grateful to be celebrating out here, near our Darfuri family. Being daily surrounded by refugees who have been away from their homeland for over a decade certainly reminds us to be thankful for everything we have back home, and it motivates us to work harder.

While speaking with some refugees today, they expressed their thankfulness for their health, as well as for the supporters whom they know they have in the United States and elsewhere. They desired to wish you all a “Happy Thanksgiving.”

We are also incredibly thankful for all of you. You are the reason we can be here and work alongside the refugees in creating a better future for them.

Thank you.

Peace,
Sara-Christine and Felicia
