Catholic Charities in Spain launch aid programs for troubled region of Darfur

.- Catholic Charities in Spain, in conjunction with Churches Together International, is launching a relief effort in the Sudanese region of Darfur in order to provide medical attention and waste disposal for local residents and displaced families, who are without access to basic health services.

According to a press release from the groups, two relief stations were set up last weekend in the Kubum and Um Labassa regions, 100 kilometers west of Nyala.

The Catholic Charities relief stations will only be temporary and are designed to function only during the current crisis.
 
Next week, the groups will establish a waste disposal program in Zalingi.  According to the press release, workers will dig over 100 latrines each week in order to provide waste disposal services for more than 2,500 people.  The number of displaced people in the area has risen to about 70,000.
 
The adverse climate is also affecting the living condition of refugees and displaced families, who urgently need some sort of protection from rainfall.
