South Sudan refugees in Omdurman suffer from heavy rains

Thousands of South Sudanese refugees at Al Fatasha camp in Sudan’s Omdurman city are facing critical environmental and humanitarian conditions owning to torrential rains these days, a camp leader said.

Malik Malek, head of the Fatasha refugee camp, told Radio Tamazuj yesterday that many families have been hit by days of heavy rain, which damaged their makeshift structures in the camp.

He expressed fears that the situation may turn worse due to lack of food, with the risk of health disasters among camp residents.

He called on aid organizations to intervene and assist the needy people as soon as possible.
