SRP: Healthcare for Darfur's Refugees and IDPs

From: Sudan Radio Project
Length: 06:34

From the Sudan Radio Project: we learn about the current state of healthcare in Darfur refugee camps.

Srp

Back in March this year, the International Criminal Court named President Omar al-Bashir as an indirect perpetrator on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity. In retaliation, the President denounced aid agencies in Darfur and ordered them out of the region. Despite these setbacks, NGOs and nonprofits have continued to work towards ameliorating the poverty, displacement and lack of security that refugees are facing in the aftermath of violence. In the process, they are coming face to face with fundamental obstacles. Nearly eight months later, we hear from two organisations working in Darfuri refugee camps to learn about the conditions and challenges facing refugees, particularly regarding healthcare. Mina Itabashi has more.
