Abu Suruj camp: no food aid for six months

May 28 - 2012 El Geneina

Residents of Abu Suruj camp for internally displaced people said they have not received food aid for more than six months.

Witnesses said the camps north of El Geneina are reaching a desperate situation and called for the World Food Programme to immediately intervene and deliver food aid to people in need of urgent assistance.

They said the disruption fo the planting season has also contributed creating a situation nearing famine, reminiscent of the Darfur famine of 1983.

They call for the WFP coordinator to visit the areas to witness it for themselves.
