Sudan: Mornei Camp in Western Darfur Facing Water Crisis

Mornei Camp — Displaced residents of Mornei camp in West Darfur are facing an acute drinking water crisis, due to the lack of fuel to operate the water stations in the camp.

One of the camp's sheiks told Radio Dabanga on Sunday, 10 February, that the camp is facing a water crisis due to the lack of fuel to operate the water stations in the camp.

The sheikh added the water stations have not been operating for five consecutive days due to the lack of fuel. He claims that the responsible humanitarian organization has stopped providing fuel to the camp due to the fact that UNICEF suspended its fuel support.

He stated that the camp residents are currently bringing water from Wadi Azum and Wadi Berri after the rise in water prices. Lastly he appealed to the authorities to intervene and solve the water issues, adding that the displaced have to walk miles to bring water as most of them do not own donkeys.
