Kalma — The World Food Programme (WFP) has said that the leaders of Kalma camp for displaced people asked to postpone the re-registration process to a later date than Saturday as originally scheduled.
WFP Field Coordinator Adham Mesallami told Radio Dabanga that the camp leaders completed all the procedures needed to start the process on Saturday but asked to delay as there are outstanding issues in the camp.
He said there have been no food rations to Kalma for over six months and the condition to resume rations is to complete the registration process.
He said he hoped the delay period would not last too long as it is not in the interest of anyone.
West Darfur rations will return to normal
The Coordinator also said the reduced rations to West Darfur camps will return to normal next month.
He said the reduction of maize by 50 percent was necessary due to the amount of corn available in the state, along with the difficulty of transporting the food meant it was not enough to be distributed to each of the camps in El Geneina.
He said this forced the WFP to cut down on the amount of food distributed to each camp, but said this shortage will not last as trucks have started arriving and carrying food to El Geneina.
