During the week, 3,800 refugees and members of the host community were sensitized on the prevention and response to Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) in Meri and Biringi sites.

Clashes and the fear thereof continued to cause a steady flow of refugees into the Haut-Uélé and Ituri provinces, where 251 new refugees were registered, compared to 424 the previous week.

The increased presence of troops along the border and the belligerents’ preparations for confrontations indicated a worsening of the situation and the continuation of refugees arriving in the DRC.
