(MissionNewswire) In 2014, Salesian missionaries opened Don Bosco Center in the city of Bukavu located in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Operated by two Salesian priests and one Salesian brother, the center is located near the main town square and a prison, giving missionaries the ideal location to meet the many street children who spend time in the square washing cars, carrying luggage and parcels, stealing and begging.
The International Development Secretary Priti Patel has called for the international community to act now and not forget the millions of people displaced by increasing levels of violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Ms Patel’s call came as she announced vital lifesaving support for hundreds of thousands of victims of political insecurity and increasing levels of violence in the DRC.
The crisis has forced 3.8 million people to flee their homes, resulting in widespread malnutrition, disease and suffering in many regions of the DRC.
La RDC compte 1 087 000 filles de dix ans en 2016 qui représentent 2,3% de la population totale.
Ces adolescentes sont les rescapées des enfants de 0 à 5 ans qui ont échappé à la mortalité infantile et juvénile due aux causes évitables telles que les infections respiratoires aigües, les maladies diarrhéiques, le paludisme et la malnutrition.
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.
Despite generous contributions from donors, the refugee operation urgently requires USD 11.4 million to avert possible supply chain breaks expected at the end of November. WFP will most likely implement ration reductions starting November if additional resources are not forthcoming.

This growth is concurrent with the unabated levels of global displacement, with 67.7 million people of concern to UNHCR worldwide.
The funding gap is widening, now standing at 54%. Based on indications received from donors and analysis of funding trends, UNHCR estimates the gap may reduce to 47% by year’s end.
