The civilian population in Kutum today received the first humanitarian assistance since the area was attacked on 1 August.

A medical team, formed by the African Union-UN Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID), World Health Organization (WHO), the NGO Goal and the Government of Sudan, assisted about 200 people, mostly women and children with injuries from the attacks and other kind of diseases due to the lack of food and potable water.
