Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been suffering from long term violence in part of the country, under development, poverty and food insecurity over the past years.
In 2016-2017, the violence in Kasai and Lomami provinces of DRC has been further intensified. An estimated 4.1 million people are currently displaced, making DRC a country with the highest number of internally displaced population (IDP) in Africa.
Over decades, armed conflicts and general insecurity in Democratic Republic of Congo (hereafter DRC) has been one of the world’s most complex and long-standing humanitarian crisis. Political changes, ethnic tensions, continuous clashes between different armed groups have left the country in a vicious cycle of violence and fighting which become part of the daily life for thousands of civilians.
