CARING Huddersfield businessmen are helping refugees caught up in the crisis in the Darfur region of Sudan.
The town's Rotary club has given cash, water purifiers and survival kits.
Spokesman Peter Whittle said: "The scale of the human tragedy is immense.
"We just had to do something to help."
An estimated 50,000 people have died in Darfur since fighting began 19 months ago.
Three or four people die of disease every day in a refugee camp housing thousands who have fled their homes because of the violence.
Huddersfield Rotarians have given £250 to a relief fund.
They have also organised the dispatch of 13 water purifiers, each with a capacity of 1,000 litres.
The purifiers have been filled with essential goods, some given by pupils of King James's School at Almondbury.
Mr Whittle said: "We are grateful to all those who have helped."
In addition to the Darfur emergency, Huddersfield Rotary Club has also given £250 to help relieve the suffering of flood victims in Bangladesh.
