[SUDAN] CEASEFIRE IN PLACE...040426

2004.06.15
WITH SUDAN CEASEFIRE IN PLACE, UNICEF BEGINS EMERGENCY RESPONSE WORK One Million People Displaced and in Need of Food, Water, Healthcare and Shelter AMMAN / KHARTOUM, 26 April 2004 ?The temporary ceasefire in western Sudan is allowing humanitarian aid workers first time access to hundreds of thousands of displaced people who were previously unreachable. 밠ore than one million people are already affected by this crisis and many more could suffer in the coming months,?said Joanna van Gerpen, the UNICEF Representative in Khartoum. 밒t is imperative that we take maximum advantage of this window to save as many lives as possible.? An emergency assessment is underway, but, even as it is being carried out, UNICEF has started immediate relief work. To date, UNICEF has ensured that:    ?Shelter, blankets, jerry cans and other essential items for daily living are mobilized for 100,000 people who fled their homes in the widespread attacks.    ?More than 48,000 children between the ages of two and 15 were vaccinated against meningitis in several camps and in the near-by communities of Kutum and Kebkabiya in northern Darfur. Another 50,000 will soon be vaccinated in the Mukjar and Mornei camps in western Darfur.    ?Over 110,000 children and women have been provided with treated bed nets to protect themselves against malaria-bearing mosquitoes.    ?Commercially hired water trucks are delivering water on a regular basis to several outlying areas where displaced families have settled in recent weeks.    ?Almost 200 boreholes have been readied to assist more than 100,000 persons.    ?A special campaign is underway to rehabilitate 300 water points that have the potential to provide safe drinking water to 150,000 people in the three Darfur states.    ?A measles campaign is planned for mid-May. All children under 15 years old will be targeted. UNICEF and WHO estimate that 2.6 million children will be vaccinated throughout the region.    ?In northern Darfur, a programme to trace and reunify children who have been separated from their families is being led by UNICEF, the International Committee of the Red Cross and Save the Children-UK. In the coming week, a joint appeal for humanitarian aid will be announced. The fund will be used to provide additional supplies for the people affected by the conflict ?many of whom are living in fragile shelters constructed of grass and without roofs. With the onset of the rainy season in June, the potential for outbreaks of disease due to inadequate shelter and crowded living conditions is a serious threat. * * *
