Surbakhal of Chad

Introduction / History
Surbakhal is a language spoken in eastern Chad. It is the name for both a people group and a language.

Where are they located?
Surbakhal people live in Chad's Ouaddaï Region; specifically Assoungha department, Adré subprefecture, between Hadjer Hadid and Alacha. This area is in eastern Chad, close to the border with Sudan.

What are their lives like?
In the early 2000s there was fighting between Chad and Sudan in this general region, which affected all people groups. Though the fighting has stopped, the Ouaddaï Region is close to Darfur, where fighting can erupt at any time. This land where the Surbakhal people live is dry, so farmers and livestock herders alike have trouble making a living in this region.

What are their beliefs?
The primary religion practiced by the Surbakhal people is Islam, a monotheistic religion built around the teachings of the Koran and of the prophet Mohammad. They also believe in numerous spirit beings which they believe have the power to bless or curse them on a daily basis.

What are their needs?
Believers can help the peoples in this region by helping them find water and dig wells.
