Jewish leaders who visited Sudanese refugee camps in Chad this month pledged to raise American Jews’ awareness of the Darfur crisis. “For 10, 15, 20,000 dollars, you can make a huge difference,” Ruth Messinger, president of the American Jewish World Service, said Thursday in a conference call. Messinger and others who participated in the AJWS-organized trip said possible projects targeting the 250,000-350,000 Sudanese refugees living in tent villages in Chad included well-digging, training health workers, building clinics and supplying educational materials.
