Photojournalist Paddy Dowling travelled to Sudan to find out what happened to those growing up in the midst of genocide
The Darfur genocide claimed the lives of an estimated 300,000 civilians, forced 1.6 million people to flee their homes inside the country and a further 600,000 refugees to spill across borders of neighbouring countries.
Of those internally displaced people (IDPs) affected by the large-scale conflict in this region of western Sudan, more than 60% were children, according to the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
Ensuring protection and solutions for IDPs in Darfur is vital for a peaceful future for Sudan
