Darfur displaced lose more than 70 houses to rains, floods

Heavy rains on Wednesday resulted in the destruction of a number of houses in the camps for the displaced at Nertiti in Central Darfur and Aramta in West Darfur.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga from northern Nertiti, one of the sheikhs of the camps reported that the heavy rains of Wednesday evening led to the collapse of 50 houses, and flooded the camp. He expressed concern about the spread of diseases due to files and mosquitoes.

A sheikh of Aramta camp in West Darfur told Radio Dabanga that the rains destroyed more than 20 houses in the camp. He criticised “the authorities’ and humanitarian organisations’ non-intervention to assist the displaced persons”.

The sheikh underscored that the affected are “living in tragic situations” due to the acute shortage of plastic sheets and tents”.

As reported by Radio Dabanga over the past week, record rainfall levels followed by flash floods have cost dozens of lives and left many injured throughout Sudan. In a swathe of destruction, thousands of homes, livestock and other property has been lost.

At least seven die, dozens wounded in North Darfur air raids

At least seven people have died and dozens more were wounded when Antonov and MiG aircraft, allegedly belonging to the Sudanese Air Force, subjected parts of North Darfur to “an intense aerial bombardment”.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga from Dubbo al Omda in East Jebel Marra on Sunday, witnesses said that the initial bombardment occurred between 7am and 10am, and included Kadja and Dady, as well as the Abu Zaid agricultural project.

“The air raids on the area then resumed, and continued into Sunday evening.”

Three brothers: Hawe Yahya Omar, Adam Yahya Omar, and Walid Yahya Omar died in one attack, while Gaber Abdurahman Yousuf, and his sons Adam Jaber, Mohammed Jaber, and Noor Mohammed Jaber died in another.

Witnesses said that the bombardment was so intense that people were simply not able to escape. In addition to dozens of wounded, large numbers of livestock perished, and many people fled towards Zamzam camp and the city of Shangil Tobay.

However, most of the citizens of the area are reportedly taking cover in the wadis and the mountains.

Witnesses called on international community “to protect them and to document the crimes of the Khartoum regime.”

Flash floods kill dozens, including children across Darfur

A flash flood that swept through Kalma camp for displaced persons in South Darfur in Saturday night has reportedly killed 16 people, including nine children. Elsewhere in the region, floods and disease have killed three children and at least two adults, while wreaking extensive destruction to homes and property.

The spokesman for the Association of Displaced Persons and Refugees of Darfur, Hussein Abu Sharati, told Radio Dabanga that in addition to the dead and wounded in Kalma camp, the flood completely destroyed 1,567 houses.

He appealed to humanitarian organisations “to expedite emergency assistance in the form of tarpaulins and tents to the displaced who are now living in pools of stagnant water”, he said.

A sheikh of the camps in Saraf Omra in North Darfur reported to Radio Dabanga that three children have died “due to, disease, fever and diarrhoea”.

He said that Saturday’s rains led to the destruction of about 2,000 homes in the camps, as well as demolishing several sanitary facilities. “Dozens of families are still in the open without shelter, food or medicines,” he said, also appealing to humanitarian organisations for urgent assistance.

Another person died in Malah locality in North Darfur. Sheikh Adam Amin told Radio Dabanga that Idris Mahmoud Gulab perished on Saturday and flash floods destroyed about 60 houses in Malah.

He told Radio Dabanga that heavy rains caused damage to five schools, a hospital and the salt works Malha, as well as three schools in the village of Marega, and the Um Ajaja agricultural project.

Amin said that the water swept Gulab away in one of the valleys in the region and his body was only found on Sunday.
