Fuel for water networks finally arrives at South Darfur camps

Remember our earlier blog in which we cited 11.25 L as being what a person would need each day to get enough to drink, wash and cook with?  Well, now the people in Al Salam Camp near Nyala in South Darfur can each get 11.7 L thanks to fuel for their water pumps finally arriving after a delay going back to late April.  Residents in Kalma, Otash, El Serif, Sakeley and Dereige camps have also had their water shortages resolved with the arrival of fuel to run their pumps.  Source is UNOCHA’s Humanitarian Bulletin Sudan, Issue 20, May 11 – 17, page 4:  “South Darfur Water Shortages Resolved.”  Report may be found here:
