The population of Ein Siro, west of Kutum in North Darfur, complain about the dire humanitarian and health situation they are living in and request urgent intervention.

Activist Adam Babiker Suleiman told Radio Dabanga from Kutum that the four health centres in the area of Ein Siro are entirely devoid of medicines.

“There are no qualified medics available because health organisations have not been allowed access for more than a year.”

Suleiman added that after the expulsion of Save the Children-Sweden in 2009, more than 20 childrens’ centres were closed. “At least 200 pre-school pupils were affected in the area.”

He appealed via Radio Dabanga to the UN, Unamid, the World Health Organisation and other health organisations “to immediately access the area of Ein Siro and provide medicines and treatment, especially as diseases are spreading because of the rainy season”.
