A boy was injured in a large fire that broke out in Kalma camp for the displaced near Nyala, capital of South Darfur, on Saturday.

Saleh Eisa, Secretary-General of Kalma camp, with more than 160,000 residents one of the largest camps in Darfur, told Radio Dabanga that four-year-old Abdelmajeed Mohamed Abdeljabar sustained burns when the fire broke out at Block 8.

“30 homes were destroyed, and 22 other shelters were partially damaged,” he reported. “Two goats and a donkey burned to death.”

Eisa said that the affected families have lost all their belongings, and are now living in the open, and called on aid organisations to “help them out as soon as possible”.
