North Darfur: East of El Fasher residents protest poor conditions

Some 459 families at the temporary shelter center in Al-Wefaq neighbourhood in North Darfur State are facing a severe food and water, shortage, an official at the centre has said.

Adam Ibrahim Tebin, an IDPs official at the center, east of El Fasher town, told Radio Tamazuj that the shortage of food and water has left them in extremely desperate situations.

The IDPs fled fighting in the neighbourhoods East of El Fasher following the outbreak of war in Sudan between the Rapid Support Forces and the Sudanese Army.

Tebin said the Humanitarian Affairs Commission in the area, hosted the displaced people and provided inadequate food supplies, forcing them to rely on the host community and well-wishers for survival.

 “The displaced people began to take over the homes of residents who fled the center, but homeowners forced them back to the center. Now they are sleeping in the cold due to lack of humanitarian aid.”

He called on humanitarian aid organizations to supplement efforts by state authorities in supporting IDPs at the center.

Hassan Sabir Juma, head of the displaced persons at the Humanitarian Affairs Commission in North Darfur, confirmed in a statement to Radio Tamazuj on Saturday that the conditions of the displaced people fleeing to El Fasher due to the war have worsened due to lack of humanitarian convoys coming from Al Gazira State to the Darfur region.
