originally posted on November 23, 2016


Kabkabiya — The displaced of Kabkabiya camps in North Darfur are fast running out of drinking water as armed groups block access to the Kobe wells, west of the camps.

On Tuesday, the coordinator of the Kabkabiya camps told Radio Dabanga that militants have prevented several organisations’ tankers from drawing water from Kobe wells west the camp since Thursday. They have, however, allowed Unamid tankers to do so.

The Coordinator said that water has run out in the camp, and explained that the displaced are in danger of thirst and hunger if they don’t get water by Wednesday.
