The Sudanese Community kitchen was built by member of the Sudanese Darfour community in the camp. Completely self-run, this is a beautiful space where 120 people cook, eat, and clean communally every day, for multiple meals. The space also serves as a social space for people from Darfour and their friends; for card games, conversation, tea. It is a gated community with fences built from woven tent poles that surround the cooking spaces, and has a small herb garden.
This citizen lead space is absolutely vital for the camp’s Sudanese population, and is an empowering space that frees residents of the camp from queuing in line for their food. The food is supplied to the kitchen by Belgium Kitchen.
