The number of people from Jebel Marra who reached the Shangil Tobaya camp in Tawila locality in North Darfur has risen to 1,446 newly arrived households. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) has provided assistance to 445 families.

“We recorded 1,446 newly arrived families, consisting of 3,116 people, who fled attacks on their villages in Jebel Marra over the past weeks,” the Shangil Tobaya camp coordinator told Radio Dabanga.

“The WFP has provided relief to about 445 families, while the rest of them have not yet received any humanitarian aid,” he reported.

“The newly displaced are facing an acute shortage of drinking water, worsened by the rising temperatures during the day, besides a lack of food, medicines, covers, and materials to construct a shelter.”
