Only about 100,000 of the 237,000 displaced in Zamzam camp, south of El Fasher, capital of North Darfur, have been receiving rations. They describe the humanitarian and security situation as dire.

An activist told Radio Dabanga that there have been deaths among children and the elderly from malnutrition and hunger.

“The humanitarian situation in the camp is catastrophic and tragic. There is also a severe shortage of other services such as school supplies, water wells, plastic sheets and shelter tents.”

He appealed to the humanitarian organisations to provide non-food items as soon as possible.
