The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, or OCHA, recently released this map highlighting the organizations in Darfur affected by last week’s expulsion by the Sudanese government. OCHA estimates that 86 NGO staffers have been removed in South Darfur, but the figures are expected to increase once all of the organizations report their statistics. The United Nations estimates that roughly 50 percent of aid workers — about 7,600 people — are affected by the expulsion.
As this map illustrates, the consequences of this pullout could be severe for the 2.1 million people in Darfur.
