Since the beginning of the war, civilians have been displaced on a massive scale, injured, killed, detained or abducted in SK and BN. Moreover, the government of Sudan continues to deny independent humanitarian access increasing the suffering and the vulnerability of civilians leaving in the Two Areas.

About 2,000 migrants tried to enter the Eurotunnel terminal in the French port town of Calais overnight in a desperate bid to reach England through the Channel tunnel, a spokesman said Tuesday.
"It was the biggest incursion effort in the past month and a half," said the spokesman for Eurotunnel, which is battling often deadly efforts by migrants to smuggle into Britain.
The increasing number of mosquitoes in camps for displaced people in Central Darfur is causing malaria infections to rise.
The coordinator of the camps for the displaced in the state spoke about the deterioration of health services in an interview with Radio Dabanga. Mosquitoes can easily breed and spread in the camps' environment.
“This spread has led to an increase in malaria among the displaced people. The Ministry of Health has taken over the provision of services after the expulsion of organisations, but is not performing its duty well,” the coordinator said.

Somalia: More than 10,000 people have been displaced in Lower Shabelle and Bay regions since AMISOM and Somali armed forces began their offensive. Al Shabaab has lost control of Bardhere in Gedo and Dinsoor in Bay. In accessible areas of Hudur town, Bakool, 33% GAM and 19% SAM were observed in a MUAC assessment in July – a significant deterioration since June. Very critical malnutrition rates persist in Bulo Burde, Hiraan.
The situation of the displaced living in North Darfur has become extremely dire, according to Omda Ahmed Ateem, coordinator of the North Darfur camps.
“All registered displaced receive an amount of SDG33 ($5) per month from the North Darfur Chamber, in agreement with the World Food Programme (WFP),” he told Radio Dabanga.
Ateem stressed that this amount is “by far not enough to cover the needs of the displaced in terms of food and water”.
The National Beja Congress may take up arms again if the provisions laid out in the 2006 Eastern Sudan Peace Agreement (ESPA) are not implemented soon.
Sheiba Dirar, chairman of the Beja Congress, blames the ruling National Congress Party(NCP) for ignoring the stipulations laid out in the agreement, signed by the Sudanese government and the Eastern Front, an alliance of opposition forces, in October 2006.
“There has not been any progress in the implementation of the three main ESPA files,” he told Radio Dabanga.
This weekly Situation Report reflects the preparedness measures currently ongoing to guard against importation of AWD/Cholera outbreak from the Republic of South Sudan. The initial cases reported in South Sudan were traced back to 18 May 2015 and the first cholera case was confirmed on 1 June 2015. Issuance of this Sit Rep is based on WR and Undersecretary/FMoH recommendations in order to keep all stakeholders on the loop in a proactive manner.
WFP requires USD 109 million for the next six months to meet refugee needs in Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.
Food stocks are stretched and WFP requires immediate contributions, particularly in Kenya and Sudan. In Kenya, WFP started 30 percent rations cuts in the second round of June distributions. Without new contributions, rations may be reduced further in the coming months. In Sudan, WFP is likely to face pipeline breaks in the coming months if additional funding is not available.
