BESOINS HUMANITAIRES ET CHIFFRES CLES
END OF YEAR SITREP: January – December 2017
2,561 severe acute malnourished (SAM) refugee children were admitted into SAM treatment programs with a cure rate of 85.4 per cent.
UNICEF supported WASH (handwashing, latrines and water points) in all camps covering 91,323 children both in schools and child friendly spaces.
With support from UNICEF, 34,468 refugee children under five were vaccinated against measles and 194,236 people with malaria were treated.
In response to funding appeals for WFP’s refugee operation, the governments of Germany (EUR 1 million), Ireland (EUR 1 million), the United Kingdom (GBP 5 million) and the United States (USD 6.5 million) contributed funding for the operation.
Despite these contributions, WFP’s refugee operation remains chronically underfunded forcing rations to be distributed at 72 percent of the recommended 2,100 kcal per person per day.
As of 31st December, 87,307 refugees from Central African Republic had arrived since midMay 2017 in Nord-Ubangi and Bas-Uele provinces.
A first batch of newly constructed emergency shelters (192) were handed over to South Sudanese refugees in the new site of Kaka (Haut-Uele province).
1,700 Burundian refugees were transferred to the new site of Mulongwe (South Kivu province) since its opening in late November. Refugees received relief items and had access to basic services.

US GRANT :
6 Services Thérapeutiques Ambulatoires (STA) ont été appuyés et suivis dans la prise en charge de la malnutrition
- A depreciating national currency, shortage of foreign exchange reserves and trade restrictions with neighboring countries continue to limit Burundi’s capacity to import food, keeping staple food prices above five-year average levels.
WFP continues to support a growing number of Burundian and Congolese refugees hosted in six camps in Rwanda. Additionally, WFP is building national capacity to design and manage home grown hunger solutions.
The political crisis that began in Burundi in April 2015 continues to affect the lives of millions of people. An estimated 200,000 people are internally displaced and more than 400,000 have fled to neighbouring countries, primarily the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.5 The security situation remains volatile, with recurrent attacks nationwide disproportionately affecting women and children, who are at greater risk of violence and exploitation.
In 2017, UNICEF and partners worked with the Government to fulfil the rights of children affected by an unprecedented influx of refugees, disease outbreaks, natural hazards and food insecurity.
Nutrition, health, child protection, HIV/AIDS, education and WASH services were supported for affected children and women.
UNICEF reinforced systems at national and district levels to improve capacity to respond to emergencies, including scaling up high impact health and nutrition, WASH, education and child protection interventions.
23,288 new arrivals were registered in Kakuma in 2017. 16,622 (71.4%) are from South Sudan.
75,297 Somalis have been assisted to return to Somalia under the voluntary repatriation programme. 35,407 returned in 2017 alone.
238,152 (49%) refugees reside in Dadaab, 185,154 (38%) in Kakuma and Kalobeyei Settlement and 65,109 (13%) in Nairobi.
