EU delegation donates €11 mln in aid to South Darfur

The European Union will donate €11 million in aid to support development projects in South Darfur, following a visit of EU ambassadors to Nyala’s Kalma camp on Thursday. They met with camp leaders, youths, women, and the  Darfur Displaced and Refugees Association.

The meetings discussed the health and security situations in the camp, located east of Nyala city. The spokesman for the association, Hussein Abu Sharati, told Radio Dabanga that the leaders of the displaced population explained to the ambassadors how they suffer from the pro-government militias’ continuous attacks, rapes, and stealing.

“The camp leaders also stressed the lack of medicines, water, and the educational problems: there are not enough teachers, books, and class rooms,” Sharati said. The spokesman concluded that the members of the delegation, headed by EU ambassador to Sudan Tomas Ulicny, committed themselves to answer all the needs of the displaced people.

The European Union has announced the donation of €11 million in aid, to support development projects and humanitarian services in South Darfur. Ulicny told reporters that he demanded more security and stability in the state during a meeting with the state’s acting Governor, Abdel Rahman Hussein Gardud, in Nyala on Wednesday. It would open the way for the implementation of development projects related to health services, sanitation, food supplies, democracy, human rights, and education, the ambassador claimed.Hussein Gardud said the security situation in the state is stable enough to implement development projects, adding that many displaced persons returned to their villages.

Ulicny stressed that the EU member states are morally committed to support Darfur’s humanitarian and development issues. He noted that the main objective of the delegation’s visit was to assess the political and developmental needs, in addition to the humanitarian situation.
