There is a shortage of classrooms to accommodate both refugee and host community students. More trained teachers, sanitation facilities, equipment, and materials are urgently needed.

Only 39 per cent of required maize meal and 28 per cent of the usual amount of pulses will be distributed in August due to funding shortage.

Lack of funding is hampering the transition from emergency shelter to a more permanent housing solution in Lóvua settlement.

Luanda, 17 July 2018 – 17 years ago, I visited the Jesuits in Angola. On our way to a retreat house site outside Luanda, we stopped at Viana, a rural area where JRS was working with refugees from Rwanda and Congo and Angolans displaced by civil war.

17 years later, I visit Viana again. In 2018, Viana is now part of sprawling Luanda, a poor, mixed community of Angolans and refugees. JRS is still there.

Résumé

Depuis août 2016, la région du Kasaï a vu l’une des escalades de violence les plus dramatiques de l’histoire congolaise.

En l’espace d’un an, 1,4 million de personnes ont été déplacées et des douzaines de milices armées ont été formées.
