M&G, 5 April 2008.
The United Nations High Commission for Refugee (UNHCR) is doubling its appeal for its operations in Darfur.
UNHCR Spokesperson, Helene Caux, notes that, “UNHCR has also been given new tasks in terms of camp management and coordination of different agencies in Darfur.”
Caux states that the UNHCR appeal says its main goal is to “assist the Sudanese government in fulfilling its responsibility to deliver an effective and coordinated humanitarian response to the needs of conflict affected populations throughout Darfur.”
This year, the UNHCR is asking for over US$40 million, compared to just under US$20 million dollars last year.
