Aryal, Abkar Abdallah.
[Razing villages in Darfur using bombs].
Refugee camp, Eastern Chad,
Wax crayons on graph paper.
On the back of this drawing is another drawing that has Arabic text that translates to, "In the name of God. Sudaneese aircraft. Draw Omar tonight. Omar is a donkey. Omar is a dog. Full name: Abkar Abdallah Aryal. One of the children of the village of Al-Milat. I was 11 when I left Sudan. I have been living in Chad for 4 years. I want to return to my people. I want to go back now, I want to go back now."
This drawing was done by a 15 year old Darfuri teenager living in a refugee camp in Chad. It depicts Sudan's military helicopters to bomb villages and the burning of homes. The military is also seen using armored vehicles to fire mortar rounds at buildings to burn them down. Women are seen being abducted and buildings being sprayed with bullets so that none of the people in the villages are able to escape.
