Radio Dabanga reports the newly displaced from Abu Shouk and Zamzam Camps face a deteriorating situation with regard to health and food. There is also an outbreak of diseases. One of the new refugees informed Radio Dabanga that more than 12 children under the age of ten years old died from diarrhea and intestinal problems, adding that the majority of newly displaced are living under the open sky without food or shelter.The source noted the deteriorating environment of the camp, the high temperatures and the crowding of the newly displaced people in one place.
The IDPs at Abu Shouk Camp complained of an acute shortage of drinking water and lack of health services. One of the camp residents told Radio Dabanga that each family is limited to a ration of 2 jerry cans of water per day.
