KALMA CAMP (29 May.) - Heavy rainfall on Sunday and Monday destroyed several houses in Kalma camp near Nyala in South Darfur.
Hussein Abu Sharati, spokesman for the Association of Displaced persons and Refugees of Darfur, told Radio Dabanga that the humanitarian organisations have not provided any new plastic sheeting for eight years.
“This results in damage to the sheeting, as well as the palm matting used to as roofs for houses. The newly displaced are most affected as they lack shelter.”
The largest allocations were provided to address critical needs in CAR and South Sudan. The donor community has contributed $220.7 million to CERF so far for 2014, one of the largest amounts since its launch in 2006.
