87 families, who fled from villages in East Jebel Marra to the Shaddad camp for the displaced, near Shangil Tobaya in Tawila locality, are still living in the open, without assistance.

“They arrived from the villages of Dubo, Falouja, and Sawani, which were attacked by government forces two months ago,” a Shaddad camp resident explained to Radio Dabanga.

“The families are living in the open, without food or cover, until now”, he said, calling on the North Darfur authorities and relief organisations to provide assistance to the newly displaced “as soon as possible”.
