Sheiria Locality, East Darfur displaced unlikely to return due to lack of resources; UN OCHA Sudan funding now at 5%

Dabanga reports on March 31 that a commissioner in Ed Daien, East Darfur stated that people displaced from Sheiria Locality (a locality in Darfur is like a county in the US) were unlikely to come back to their lands and homes because of the insecurity, and the lack of access to potable water, education and health resources.  The sole health resource, he said, was a clinic with one medical assistant.  The Dabanga article also has a picture of a water tank being mounted on a platform in Neem camp in Ed Daien on March 17.  This will give residents one less reason to take a grave risk by walking outside of the camp:

And the UN’s Sudan Humanitarian Response Plan has now received $50 million against the $1.04 billion needed, or 5% according to the financial tracking system of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.  See page four of the March 23-29 humanitarian bulletin for Sudan put out by UNOCHA:
