Challenge

The violent clashes between the Armed Forces of the DR Congo (FARDC) and the militiamen Kamuina Nsapu in the province of Kasai Central have been of concern to humanitarian and development actors. Today, more than one million people are estimated to be displaced as the violence started in Kasai Central and rippled across neighboring Kasai. The current humanitarian needs are 400% above what humanitarian actors had planned for earlier this year when they launched the country's Humanitarian Response

Solution

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs today appealed for USD 64.5 million to respond to the urgent humanitarian needs of 731,000 people over the next six months in the Kasai region. Our project is part of this response plan and aims to provide emergency humanitarian aid to the internally displaced families and to strengthen their community resilience. We will focus on the most vulnerable and those with special needs such as people with disabilities, children and others

Long-Term Impact

The most vulnerable people and people with special needs(representating 15%) have received emergency humanitarian assistance and their immediate needs are being met.
