Approximately 3,000 Chadian refugees recently moved to a camp in Um Shalaya, located in the centre of Sudan's West Darfur state. The refugees are predominately from the Daju tribe in eastern Chad. They fled their homes in recent months due to growing insecurity, and sought safety in Sudan.

They initially settled around the town of Habila, near the Chadian border. The conditions there were poor, with some families even living in the wadi (seasonal riverbed) before the rains started.
