The town of El Fasher currently has shortages of electricity and water. A resident named Ismail Ahmed said that the electricity is supplied to the city’s north or south every other day but not until 11:00 at night, which is too late for people to make use of it. He also pointed out that the price of a barrel of drinking water has risen to four pounds.
Mohamed Abdullah, a source speaking from the nearby Abu Shouk camp in North Darfur, said that the humanitarian situation is poor. He mentioned deficiencies in food, security conditions, and drinking water. He explained that the Mawasir market scam, which defrauded thousands of Darfuris including many merchants, has affected the situation of the displaced people.
