Sexual Violence

Women and children living in the Darfur regions of Sudan are at risk of being raped inside IDP camps, while collecting firewood, grazing cows or other livestock by armed militia, factions of the Sudan Liberation Army, pastoralists and the Sudanese Armed Forces.

Sexual abusers are often armed with guns, sometimes on motorcycles, horseback, camels  or donkeys. 

Mass and gang rape, and rapes while being held kidnapped are all common. At least one woman was killed after she was raped. Survivors are aged between 8 and 50 years old. Data
