Established in May 2004, Breidjing Camp is the 7th refugee camp in Chad created for refugees displaced by the genocide in the neighboring western province of Darfur, Sudan. In 2005, the American photography book Hungry Planet, depicted the six-person Aboubakar family, who lives in the camp, as subsisting on only 685 CFA per week, or a little over €1. The following year, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees reported that “thousands of men and boys were forcibly or voluntarily recruited” from the camp into the Sudanese army.
