The African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) has provided nearly 250,000 U.S. dollars to improve schools and hospitals in the violence-ridden region of Sudan.

Deputy Joint Special Representative of UNAMID Henry Anyidoho presented the funding to non-governmental organizations Sunday on a visit to South Darfur in Western Sudan, where he also inspected Chinese construction projects.

The new funding will be used to support Quick Impact Projects (QIPs), such as building classrooms, toilets and water pumps. It also covers the construction of an x-ray wing for a local hospital

The ceremony took place in the Kalma camp, a huge South Darfur camp which houses about 90,000 internally displaced persons. A school has been built there with the QIPs funding.

Leaders of the camp told Anyidoho about their wretched living conditions, including food and water shortages and inadequate amenities and social services that are crucial for their survival.

Anyidoho inspected the progress of work by a UNAMID-funded Chinese engineering company, including construction of two dams. The Kalma camp was flooded heavily recently during the wet season.
