El Fasher, 29 June 2015 - UNAMID is concerned about recent media reports that the Mission has deliberately delayed assisting the Sudan Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration Commission (SDDRC).
UNAMID’s role in the ongoing disarmament, demobilisation, reintegration process in Darfur is guided by the provisions set out in the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD). The DDPD provides for UNAMID supporting the SDDRC in its endeavour to disarm and demobilise former combatants from Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) and Justice and Equality Movement (JEM-Sudan/Dabajo).
On 30th June 2015, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-Sudan (SPLM (Sudan)) signed Geneva Call’s Deed of Commitment for the Protection of Children from the Effects of Armed Conflict, and became the first African armed non-State actor (ANSA) to commit to child protection through this tool.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) employs more than 2,800 South Sudanese staff and more than 300 international staff to respond to a wide range of medical emergencies and provide free and high quality healthcare to people in need.
