‘Lack of services in East Darfur’s Sheiria’: commissioner
The commissioner of Sheiria locality, East Darfur, has acknowledged the lack of services in the area.
Speaking to reporters in the East Darfur capital of Ed Daein on Monday, Commissioner Mustafa Yousef admitted that the residents of Sheiria locality are suffering from insecurity, and a poor provision of clean drinking water, and health and educational services.
He expects that many people, who abandoned their villages in the locality in search of a safer place to live, will not be prepared to return, due to the lack of services.
The commissioner pointed to the existence of only one rural hospital in Sheiria locality, where currently one medical assistant is employed. This increases the suffering of the patients, he said, in particular pregnant women, who have to travel to Ed Daein for medical treatment.
