Relief Beads bracelets are handmade from sand by tribes in Africa and assembled by refugees in Darfur and family groups. The funds raised by Relief Beads provide direct relief for refugees in Darfur, Southern Sudan, and Somalia. The majority of the funds raised by Relief Beads support feeding programs for malnourished children, as well as the refugee women making Relief Beads at the Women's Development Center in Darfur. Each and every Relief Beads bracelet really does provide life-saving assistance for someone's life! Most refugees don't even have $1 to buy their own food. Your support especially combats rampant child malnutrition in Darfur, Southern Sudan, and Somalia.
