Nertity — Residents from Nertity camp in Central Darfur are suffering from a lack of drinking water, reportedly caused by a lack of fuel to operate the water pumps, sources told Radio Dabanga on Friday November 23.
A sheikh from the camp told Radio Dabanga that the camp residents no longer have access to drinking water, as was organized by UNICEF in the past. He explained that the camp residents used to be able to bring water from a water station, which was open for two hours in the morning and two hours in the evening.
He addedd that due to a lack of gasoline to operate the water pumps, people now only receive a tin of water for a period of four days.
The sheikh stated that this amount is 'insufficient' and appealed to local authorities and international organizations to solve the fuel probem as soon as possible, he added to Radio Dabanga from Nertity.
