Officials and civil sources have expressed concern at the growing phenomenon of homelessness in South Darfur, with growing marriages and pregnancies among homeless children.

A Source told Radio Dabanga that the last census in 2014 revealed that there were nearly 5,000 homeless children, of whom 90% live in the state capital of Nyala, while 10% live at the locality headquarters.

The official said the homelessness children can be classified into two types, namely completely homeless or partially homeless.

He explained that completely homeless are the children who sleep in the markets, and the partially displaced live during day homeless in the market and return to family at night.
