South Sudanese refugees in the Al Kashafa refugee camp in Sudan's White Nile State have complained of delays in food aid distribution for May and inadequate clean drinking water in the camp.

Speaking to Radio Tamazuj on Monday, several refugees said their living conditions have worsened as they wait for the distribution of food rations.

Adok Deng, a resident at the camp, complained that they do not have sufficient clean water for drinking and other household purposes and they have not received their May food rations.

"There is a delay in the distribution of monthly food rations which we are given every end month. The food is usually not sufficient for the family for a whole month," he added.

Deng called on the refugee committees and humanitarian agencies in the camp to urgently intervene and resolve refugee challenges.

For his part, Al-Nur Ulwak, head of the camp, acknowledged the delay in food distributions but said this is the only time such has happened. 

Ulwak also confirmed that the monthly food rations are not sufficient for individuals or families.

"The ration for one person is only one kilogram of sorghum. We have spoken with the refugee affairs representative, but they have not responded to our concerns," he noted. 

He further said that they have raised concerns about the water problem to the authorities to no avail. - Radio Tamazuj
