N'Djamena (Agenzia Fides) - Sudanese refugees in Goz Amer camp, eastern Chad, complain about a severe shortage of humanitarian aid, health care and food services. A group of refugees in the camp, in an interview to a local radio station, said that there are no medicines and doctors for routine checkups at the health facilities of the camp, which houses more than 35,000 refugees. Refugees are forced to buy medicines outside. Furthermore, they complain about a decrease in monthly rations of food and drinking water. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 16/05/2016)
