South Kordofan suffers from expulsion of aid agencies

April 14, 2009 (Miraya FM)

The Minister of Social Welfare in the government of South Kordofan State, Awatif Al-Tom, has said that the expulsion of the Non-Governmental Organizations from Sudan had created health problems in the areas of Al-Kauda, Lagawa, and Abu-Jebeha.

Mrs. Al-Tom, who is also the head of the Committee responsible for closing the humanitarian gap created by the expulsion of the Non-Governmental Organizations in the State, warned that the conditions might deteriorate as the rainy seasons approach.

Earlier, a joint delegation from the UN, the Government of National Unity, and the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs visited different areas in South Kordofan State to asses the humanitarian situation following the expulsion of the aid agencies.
