KALMA CAMP (15 May.) - Camps for displaced persons near Nyala in South Darfur are in dire need of tarpaulins and tents with the approaching rainy season. The existing equipment is worn, broken, and offers inadequate protection “even from light rain”.
Hussein Abu Sharati, spokesman for the association of displaced persons and refugees of Darfur, told Radio Dabanga that thousands of displaced people are living in the open, while the rain has already started in Darfur. On 5 May he said that a total of 41,441 families have arrived at Kalma since the beginning of March.
