Malnutition-( STARVATION ) on the rise in Darfur.

26 Apr

Unicef: Malnutrition on the rise n Darfur / from the Guardian Unlimited.

“We need to raise the alarm bell,'' said Ted Chaiban, head of UNICEF's mission to Sudan. “We're losing ground. We need to stop this deterioration. “We are seeing the beginning of what could be a reverse of the positive trend of 2005.'' Fighting between the government, its allies and the rebel movements, infighting among rebel factions jockeying for position and territory, as well as general banditry – individuals hijacking trucks, looting food, supplies and equipment – have forced a new wave of people from their homes, Chaiban said. Unrest is also preventing access to roughly a third of all those people who have been forced from their homes but remain within Sudan, and are therefore not officially classified as refugees because they have not fled across an international border. “And there is the added element of lack of funding despite the fact this is seen and said to be a top priority for most donors,'' said Chaiban, who said UNICEF has only received $15 million of the $89 million it appealed for in Darfur for 2006.
