Purpose

The Genocide Intervention Fund (GIF) aims to increase public awareness about genocide and support organizations, initiatives and government policies designed to help prevent and stop genocide. At this stage, the GIF will focus its fundraising on supporting African Union peacekeepers in Darfur, Sudan.

The GIF offers donors an unprecedented opportunity to contribute to a peacekeeping force capable of providing security to civilians threatened by genocide.

Since February 2003, the Sudanese Government, using Arab "Janjaweed" militias, its air force, and organized starvation, has killed more than 400,000, displaced almost 3 million, and continues to kill at least 15,000 Darfurians each month. The UN Secretary-General has called it "little short of hell on earth."
