  UK charities help Sudan refugees
Updated 20 July 2004, 09.55
Refugee children
British charities are making a massive effort to help a million people left homeless by years of fighting in Africa's largest country, Sudan.

The Disasters Emergency Committee is organising the appeal on behalf of lots of leading charities, including Save The Children, Oxfam and Christian Aid.

The Sudanese conflict is between government forces and two rebel groups.

The fighting has forced many people from their homes and the refugee camps are now running short of supplies.

A DEC spokesman said: "The scale of people's suffering in Sudan is immense and is getting worse.

Shelter

"People have lost family members, been driven from their homes and lost everything they own."

The money raised will provide food, shelter and clean water for the refugees.
