Sudan: Mornei Camp Suffering From Water Scarcity, Displaced

Mornei — Displaced from Mornei camp in West Darfur have complained about scarcity of drinking water due to malfunctioning waterpumps, sources told Radio Dabanga on Tuesday, 11 December.

A camp representative said that 7 of the camp's water stations stopped operating five days ago, claiming that camp residents are currently fetching drinking water from surrounding valleys.

Also, he mentioned that the prices of water tanks have gone up from 6 Sudanese pounds to 10 and that it takes around four hours back and forth to fetch water from Wadi Azum by donkey.

He appealed to the organizations working in the camp to speed up the repair of the water stations.
