long story short:

Darfur is a region in Sudan

it is kind of a civil war in which the Janjaweed militias (covertly supported by the Sudanese government are targeting the Fur, Zaghawa and Massaleit ethnic groups.

they are committing mass genocide essentially and creating more and more suffering refugees each and every day.

the Sudanese government has said that any attempt to interfere, whether by the UN or other coalition, will be an act of war and they will retaliate and possibly increase their attempts at killing.
