Ismail, Mohammed Adam
[One of the villages of Darfur].
Refugee camp, Eastern Chad,
Pencil on graph paper.
The Arabic text in the drawing translates to, "One of the village of Darfur. An attack carried out by the Sudanese government using helicopters and tanks. A home owner running out of his house." On the back side of the drawing, the text reads, "My name is Mohammed Adam Ismail. From Sudan, region of Kuba Mahalia. I was a refugee when I was 14 years old, now I'm 18".
This drawing by an 18-year-old Darfuri was drawn 4 years after his village was attacked. He depicts a typical serene village in Darfur that was later attacked and bombed by Sudanese military helicopter gunships and armored tanks. To try and save their lives, many civilians ran away without any of their belonging.
