The Coordination Office of the Darfur Displaced and Refugees Association has strongly rejected plans by the Sudanese Humanitarian Aid Commission (HAC) to conduct an inventory of food ration cards in the camps for the displaced.

The Coordination Office considers the step as a prelude to stop humanitarian aid to the displaced, Yagoub Ismail, Displaced and Refugees Coordinator told Radio Dabanga from Kalma camp in South Darfur on Wednesday.

“We unanimously reject the HAC plans on the basis that any notice about food distribution is supposed to come from the joint Humanitarian Coordination Secretariat in Sudan,” he stated, pointing out that HAC officials “in the past have dropped tens of thousands of food ration cards under the pretext of re-registration of the displaced”.
