Halima Abakar Haroon, 23, sits with her son Noureddine Adbul Rachman, 2, in her hut in the North camp for internally displaced Sudanese people in Nertiti, West Darfur, Sudan on March 23, 2009. Halima is pregnant and was raped last month by armed men while traveling 6 km outside of the camp to Keddy village to fetch firewood with a few other women. Neriti struggles with a lack of security due to armed factions from both Arab nomads and SLA rebels, and Sudanese government troops. As camps are dealing with the expulsion of international organizations, and most clinics have been closed in the camps, many IDPs are faced with a shortage of water and growing health concerns, as well as a lack of sanitation. | Location: Nertiti, West Darfur, Sudan.
