Kalma, Tawila camps in Darfur suffer water shortage, difficulties

April 21 - 2011 KALMA CAMP

Displaced people in Kalma camp in South Darfur and Dali camp in Tawila, North Darfur, complained of severe shortage in drinking water and relief aid and terrible health services in the two camps. A sheikh from Kalma camp told Radio Dabanga that 3 children passed away at center 7. Additionally, miscarriages are common because pregnant women have to walk long distances and spend a long time waiting at the water pump to get water.

He added that the relief was still awaited at center 1 due to the halt of distributions by organizations, which caused starvation, especially to the citizens of centers which haven’t received rations of two months which organization promised to deliver at once.
