Sudan: Médecins Sans Frontières Returns to Tawila, North Darfur

Tawila / El Salam Camp — A group of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) personnel have reportedly arrived at Tawila, North Darfur.

The MSF staff withdrew from the region in early September, citing insecurity in the region when their clinic was attacked and robbed twice within one week.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga a source reported that 130 MSF staff members, including doctors, nurses and midwives, arrived in Tawila town on Wednesday.

The source confirmed that the organisation did not begin its work immediately, because of a lack of medicines. Instead the medical work will be resumed next week after the arrival of medicines.

In South Darfur, on the occasion of Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice) CARE USA distributed clothes (jellabia's, women's garments, and shoes) to about 3,000 families in El Salam camp, which houses 121,000 displaced people.
