Peacekeepers Protect Women in Rural Areas of Darfur
Kaltoum Adam Imam with one of her five children collects millet in a land rented by a community leader in Saluma Area, near El Fasher (North Darfur). She works with her sister Sadias (in background). Both are from Tarne village (some kilometres away) and they emigrated to Saluma due to security reasons. Twice a week, the African Union-UN Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) organizes patrols to escort women, like Imam, who are farming and collecting firewood in rural areas.
