Remember the Women and Children of Darfur

I've posted a lot about the women of Darfur who are being systematically raped by janjaweed militia and sometimes cast out by their villages because of the rape or subsequent pregnancy. The BBC has another article about the horrific state of society in Darfur, where villagers curse children and mothers suckle babies with dry breasts (both generations suffer from malnutrition on the verge of starvation).
