On Friday four women died in childbirth at Saraf Umra Hospital in North Darfur, which is suffering from a severe shortage of resources.

A relative of one of the women told Radio Dabanga that the “dire situation at the hospital led to the death of Khadija Ibrahim Abdallah, Hawa Mohamed Yousef, Magboula Hussein Suleiman, and Mashayir Adam Ahmed Suleiman.

She appealed to the UN and international health organisations to intervene and provide the hospital with trained staff, equipment, and medicines.
