Sudan: Newly displaced continue to arrive at El Salam camp in South Darfur

EL SALAM CAMP (23 Apr.) A group of 22 families from Gireida locality reached El Salam camp for the displaced in South Darfur on Monday. Six families arrived from the Bembere refugee camp in the Central African Republic.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, El Salam camp sheikh Mahjoub Adam Tabaldiya reported that newly displaced still continue to arrive at the camp. “On Monday 22 families consisting of 71 people arrived from Gireida, which is about 300km south of El Salam camp. They originally come from the area of Fula Um Nawara in El Salam locality, and wandered around for more than a month after their villages were attacked by the Rapid Support militias at the end of February.”

Another six families, consisting of 28 people, arrived on the same day from the Bembere refugee camp in the Central African Republic. “They left Bembere out of fear for the armed conflicts in the country, and arrived at the Sudanese border after walking 22 days on foot.”

“The new arrivals are in urgent need of humanitarian aid,” the sheikh said. “They are based in Centre 10 in the camp without access to water, food, or shelter.”

He reported that Unicef, the International Organization for Migration, and CARE international organisation have visited the newcomers, “yet without providing them with any assistance”.
