Drinking Water Disrupted in Port Sudan, West Kordofan
Port Sudan / El Odeya — Districts in Port Sudan have been coping with an increase in water and power outages. Drinking water scarcity in West Kordofan has resulted in a steep price for a barrel of water.
Most areas in the state capital of Red Sea in eastern Sudan lack drinking water services, and residents rely on donkey carts for drinking water supply, amid soaring prices for water.
Reports are that the colour and taste of the water from the taps has changed. “Many people fear that they m ight suffer from celiac disease.” Also power outages in Port Sudan continue for hours.
