Since 2003, over 400,000 people have died at the hands of the Sudanese government and Janjaweed militias. Have you ever seen 400,000 of anything at one time? To hear a number that large doesn’t even register. That is until a site like Darfur Wall comes along and helps you try and visualize this tragedy.

On the site,.. the numbers 1 to 400,000 cover the 40 panels of The Darfur Wall. Each number represents a person killed in Darfur. Donate one dollar or more to turn a number from dark gray to brilliant white and honor one lost life. 100% of the proceeds go to four Darfur relief organizations.

Visit the site and look at all the numbers,.. then try to imagine a face behind each one. Unreal. Go donate today and let’s light this wall up.
