Sudan: Refugees Ask for Service Provision Extension

East Chad — Sudanese refugees living in eastern Chad are asking international organizations to extend the provision of services at the camps without compromising the distribution of food rations.

These services include water supply, health, education and environmental services, they told Radio Dabanga on Wednesday, 26 December.

On behalf of all sheikhs, the head of camp Touloum, Haider Gardia, is appealing to organizations such as CARE to continue providing refugees "financial and moral support" in addition to food.
