A number of people in western Jebel Marra, Central Darfur, died of fever and diarrhoea during the past week.
“In particular the newly displaced are suffering from a bad health,” a listener told Radio Dabanga from the area of Golo.
“Many have died already from contagious fevers and diarrhoea. The most recent case was Maryam Adam Musa, who passed away in Bouri village on Monday. Others are in critical condition.”
He urged the authorities and health organisations to provide health care and medicines to the people in the area “as soon as possible”.
