Sudan / Abyei: Fighting in Abyei displaces thousands

04 Oct 2002 description

Millions of people in southern Africa require urgent humanitarian assistance, but the crisis doesn't end there. The lack of food in the south has also affected central African countries like the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Three southern provinces of DRC--Katanga, East and West Kasai--have relied on southern African countries for 80 percent of their basic foodstuffs. Food shortages already exist in the DRC; people are liable to start dying from hunger within three months.
