00:00:00 1. Refugee camps Many thousands of people have been displaced throughout the country since the start of the war. Some camps are home to over a 100 000 displaced people and have become genuine centres of activity where life is returning to normal thanks to the work of NGOs. In some cases, the population of the camps fuses with that of small towns and villages in the vicinity. Our bank contains images of a number of camps: NORTHERN SUDAN - Kalma, some few kilometres from Niala, in Southern Darfour - Riad and Madras are camps close to the border with Chad, at El Genina in Western Darfour. - Zam-Zam is a few kilometres from El Fasher, a town in Northern Darfour. - Sharif Umra is a small town which has doubled in size with the arrival of the displaced persons. (Western Darfour). - The El Salaam Camp at Omdurman is one of the oldest in the country. Barely 25 kilometres from Khartoum, it is threatened with demolition although over a hundred thousand people live there. SOUTHERN SUDAN - Nimule is a small town situated on the border with Uganda. Despite the apparent lull in the conflict, living conditions in the area are still very precarious. Local and displaced people mix freely and receive aid supplied by ECHO through its partners. - In Old Fangak, an area consisting of small hamlets lost in the centre of the biggest swamp in Africa, survivors of the conflict live on the absolute minimum in the traditional manner with no running water or electricity. Humanitarian aid trickles through to the area either by boat or by plane. 00:04:44

00:08:46 3. Water and children Children help in daily chores from a very young age. They are often put in charge of fetching water, which is why so many are to be seen around the pumps installed by the NGOs. Since the arrival of international aid in Sudan, several hundred water pumps have been installed in camps and villages. In Darfour, which is basically a desert region, aid workers had to drill in some cases as deep as 100 metres before hitting a reserve of drinking water. Once it reaches the surface, this water obviously has to be treated with caution for hygiene reasons. Some NGOs such as Oxfam or Triangle have taken on the job of installing drinking water distribution networks for whole villages. They also train the local population in elementary rules of hygiene. 00:07:08

00:24:56 5. Logistics Organising humanitarian aid for a country five times the size of France is no easy task. For reasons of security as well as physical geography, most consignments have to be transported by air. Some small distances can be covered by 4x4 or by boat in the swampy areas along the Nile in the south of the country. The various operators working in the field are now able to communicate effectively thanks to a very recently installed mobile phone network and a satellite telephone link. 00:02:53

Some of the administrative work for southern Sudan is managed from Nairobi in Kenya. The various partners working in collaboration with ECHO in the field can be recognised by the fact that they display the ECHO logo as well as their own. 00:01:06
