Farming in Gereida (South Darfur)
25 July 2012. Gereida: Three women with a baby farm the land in Forika camp for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) in Gereida (South Darfur) during the rainy season. Women, children and elder people living in camps usually farm the surrounding lands and let men work in further areas in order to avoid robberies, rapes and other perpetrations.
The area is controlled by the Government of Sudan forces. In May, the rebel movement occupied Gereida for 24 hours after a big clash that destroyed the telecommunications of the city and several buildings.
UNAMID has deployed a battalion from Ethiopia (more than 800 soldiers) that assures the protection of civilians.
