The African Union - United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) is currently the largest peacekeeping mission in the world with more than 25,000 staff, civilian, military and police. Among them, almost 3,000 Sudanese, mostly Darfuris. Directly affected by the conflict, they contribute to the Mission’s mandate and try to bring peace and to provide assistance and protection to their compatriots. Unfortunately, they usually occupy lower positions and their contribution is frequently not as recognized as that of their international colleagues.
This project is about showing their background, motivation, contribution and their dreams. It is a tribute to those men and women who try to build a brighter future for their family and their country.
