Our Story

DRDA was founded by Karak Denyok in 2003. Karak was born in the Nuba mountains of Sudan and experienced first hand the brutality of war. As a child she and her family were forced to leave their village and move to a refugee camp. The violence and poverty that she saw at every hand left her with the determination to do something to alleviate that suffering. Since its inception, DRDA has served over 15,000 women and children in countries ravaged by violent conflict.
