Thirst in North Darfur’s Shaddad camp
The residents of the Shaddad camp for the displaced near Shangil Tobaya in North Darfur’s Tawila locality are suffering from a lack of drinking water.
“Two of the three water engines in the camp broke down in mid-December,” one of the Shaddad camp sheikhs explained to Radio Dabanga.
“The people are now forced to fetch foul water from the area of Darsasiya, about one-and-a-half kilometre from the camp.”
He called on “international and national relief organisations and state authorities to speed up the repair of the stalled water pumps”.
