Saving lives through faster emergency response
In June 2004, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was shaken by widespread crises, notably in the East of the country. To ensure that response organizations had the financial and material means to react quickly, the humanitarian community implemented a Rapid Response Mechanism program in October 2004.
The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.
Eastern DRC is a mosaic of constantly shifting zones of insecurity and relative stability, with new waves of displacement and return every week. These multiple and protracted crises impact families’ access to adequate shelter and essential household and personal items to undertake essential daily activities for their survival, well-being, and protection.
Average NFI vulnerability scores among affected population in 2015 were an average of 3.8; the Cluster intervention threshold is 3.0.

CRS and local Caritas partners are working to help desperate refugees
Baltimore/Nairobi, May 28, 2015 – Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Caritas are helping some of the nearly 90,000 refugees from Burundi, the majority women and children, who have spilled over the borders into neighboring Tanzania, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo since violence erupted in their country in late April.
L’ONG américaine Catholic relief service (CRS) organise depuis ce dimanche 22 décembre une foire économique au village Kyalwe, territoire de Mitwaba, à près de 300 km de Lubumbashi. Cette foire vise à aider environ sept cents déplacés à acheter ce dont ils ont besoin pour vivre dans leurs milieux d’accueil.
Catholic Relief Services, working with its local partner Caritas Goma, has provided food to almost 10,000 families – over 50,000 people – affected by the violence in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
The distributions were conducted in the city of Goma where tensions remain high in the wake of fighting between the Congo Army and the rebel group M23. Violence forced many to flee to Goma from outlying villages where some reportedly faced attacks by M23 members on Dec. 2. Reports said the attacks included looting and rapes.
