Meanwhile, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) says that in West Darfur, 10 out of 13 therapeutic feeding centres formerly run by expelled international non-governmental organizations have maintained their activities.  UNICEF is currently providing salaries or incentives to all staff working in these centres.


Yesterday, a UN and international NGO assessment in the health, nutrition and water and sanitation sectors was conducted in the Kalma internally displaced persons’ camp in South Darfur.  It was observed that basic services in the sectors are still operational, but a replenishment of some stocks is required.


OCHA also reports that the State Humanitarian Affairs Commission has not handed over the keys to the United Nations Joint Logistics Centre to their warehouses in El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur.
