El Riyadh camp: one medical clinic for 30.000 residents
Radio Dabanga was informed today that there is only one medical clinic available at the El Riyadh camp in El-Geneina, West Darfur. The camp counts 30.000 residents who claim to face a serious humanitarian crisis.
A camp's activist told Radio Dabanga that the three most serious issues in El Riyadh are lack of security, lack of water and lack of medical services. He added there is also scarcity of nurses and of midwives at the camp.
The source said this situation arose after June 2011 when the Government of Sudan expelled medical international humanitarian organizations from the camp. He explained the international organizations were substituted by the Sudanese Ministry of Health.
The activist also said that the water price at the camp is rising. He revealed that international organizations provided water for free for camps' residents, but that the Government of Sudan imposes fees over water barrels.
