Heavy rainfall in Central Darfur on Monday resulted in the collapse of several homes, in particular in the camps for the displaced.  

Elders of Garsila, Deleig, and Bindisi camps reported to Radio Dabanga that the torrents caused much damage.

A number of shelters and lavatories collapsed. Belongings and food stuffs were spoiled, because of the dilapidated tents, plastic sheets, and thatched roofs. 

The elders appealed to the authorities and relief organisations to provide plastic sheets and tents to the affected.
