Sudan bans humanitarian access to Klama camp in Darfur


Saturday 7 August 2010  
August 6, 2010 (KHARTOUM) – Sudanese authorities are still barring humanitarian assistance to Kalma in south Darfur following last week clashes in the troubled camp.
Kalma camp is located near Nyala, the capital of South Darfur, and is home to over 90,000 people, most of whom are supporters of the Sudan Liberation Movement led by rebel leader Abdel Wahid Al-Nur. The local authorities are surrounding the camp since

August 2.
In its daily briefing of Thursday the peacekeeping mission confirmed the aid blockade saying that "aid groups still await permission to enter the camp." The UNAMID also reported that IDPs were exposed to heavy rainfall "increasing fears of health risks".
Martin Nesirky, Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General Friday confirmed the denial of humanitarian worker access to the camp on Friday.
"There is still no access. And, I will again check with my colleagues in the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). (…) Clearly, we would wish that to change."
People from Kalma reached this week by Sudan Tribune said residents inside the camp are suffering from lack of food. They also said those who dare to quit the camp to bring something for their children are not allowed to re-enter again.
The Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says they have not had access to Kalma camp since 2 August. "No humanitarian access has been granted so far in eastern Jebel Marra since February 2010" Nesirky further added.
However, the UNAMID said Sudanese authorities lifted a ban on UN flights to Ed Daein, Muhejeria and Sheria, South Darfur, which have been in place since June.
The head of the government Humanitarian Aid Commission in South Darfur, Jamal Youssef, denied, in statements to Reuters, preventing aid workers from accessing Kalma camp. He said most people had left for villages north and east of the camp, where they had allowed aid agencies to access.
But Farhan Haq, a UN spokesperson from New York, refuted Youssef’s statements saying those villages had some people who fled Kalma but many others who had not.
The head of the peacekeeping mission Ibrahim Gambari urged Khartoum yesterday to drop its demand to handover six residents from Kalma saying such move will inflame the situation in the camp and lead to more violence.
The United Nations seek to de-escalate the growing tension in Kalma and other IDPs camps in the restive region because it believe such situation would impact negatively the ongoing efforts in Doha to settle the seven year conflict.
Officials from Sudanese government and UN are expected to tackle on Saturday the humanitarian situation in South Darfur State.
