Sudanese refugees living with disability and children at the Al-Malik Camp in Adré in eastern Chad last week received sports kits from Your Right, an organization founded by a fellow refugee.

Sadiq Abdullah Idris, the organization’s founder, told Radio Tamazuj that the sports equipment, including footballs and t-shirts, were distributed to children and people living with disabilities.

“This group lives in a state of neglect and deprivation in all aspects of life. Therefore, this step came to support and encourage children and people living with disability to continue their sports activities like other groups in the camp so that they do not feel deprived due to their health conditions,” he said. “Several talented individuals in the camp need urgent assistance to document their work and activities to contribute to creating a generation dominated by sports and cooperation despite the conflicts.”

Abdullah called on all stakeholders and humanitarian organizations to visit the camp, assess the conditions, and intervene with donations.

The Your Right initiative is a youth initiative established after the events witnessed in the city of Geneina last year. It was founded by Sadiq Abdullah Idris, an athlete and refugee from Geneina, and a group of young people to preserve and promote sports and support talented individuals.

It enables them to showcase their talents in the field, in addition to strengthening social cohesion among Sudanese refugees in Chad.
