Uige - At least 505 former Angolan refugees in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) returned home on Tuesday through the Kimbata border post in Maquela do Zombo municipality, some 310 kilometres north of Uige city.
This is part of the programme of repatriation going on since August this year.
The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) official, Bernardo Pacavira, told Angop that of the 526 who were expected to return to Angola on the 11th convoy of DRC returnees, 17 were denied due to questionable documentation, while four just missed.
The Joint Assessment Mission (JAM) was conducted over the period from February until June 2014 with the aim of obtaining a better understanding of the situation, needs, risks, capacities and vulnerabilities of asylum seekers and refugees with regards to their food and nutrition security as well as livelihood opportunities, and providing recommendations for the next 6 to 12 months. This JAM report aims to provide information for programming through the design of a joint -programme cycle for UN agencies and their partners under the coordination of the Government of Zimbabwe.
L’ONG FIAFED distribue des moustiquaires imprégnées d’insecticide dans le camp de déplacés pygmées de Tchanga Tchanga à Kabalo (Katanga). Cette organisation organise également des analyses de laboratoire pour détecter des cas de malaria dans cette communauté. Elle veut diminuer le taux de mortalité dû au paludisme.
Ce camp de déplacés compte plus de 609 ménages. La majorité de personnes qui y vivent sont des enfants de moins de 5 ans, des femmes enceintes et des vieilles personnes. Elles vivent dans la promiscuité et la précarité.

1. Executive Summary
Kenya has been providing protection and lifesaving assistance to refugees since the 1960s. During the 1990s major influxes were witnessed from Sudan, Somalia and Ethiopia. While returns took place as the situation improved in places of origin for Sudanese to South Sudan and Ethiopians to Ethiopia, a significant number of refugees remained and continue to be hosted in Kenya. As well, 2011 saw an unprecedented influx of Somalis as a result of drought and insecurity in their homeland.
A. Situation analysis
Description of the disaster
Snapshot 16–23 April
Central African Republic: Renewed clashes between anti-balaka and Seleka fighters occurred in several locations in central, northern, and southwestern provinces. MISCA soldiers are being redeployed to cover areas previously secured by the Chadian contingent. A Christian religious leader was killed and four were abducted in two northern towns, while 30 Christian civilians were reportedly killed in a central town.
Syria: Violence is intensifying in Damascus, with increased attacks from both the Government and the opposition. In Aleppo, fighting between Syrian troops and opposition fighters is causing further casualties. In the east, infighting between rival opposition factions has led to a reinforcement of Iraqi troops’ positions on the Iraqi side of the border. To date, over nine million people are in need of assistance, and more than 2.6 million have fled the country. In early April, humanitarian assistance was allowed in besieged areas in Aleppo for the first time since June.
