North Kivu Situation Report No. 11, 23 November 2012

from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 23 Nov 2012


• Heavy fighting on 22 November between FARDC and M23 in Sake forced thousands of people to flee in several directions; around 5,000 people arrived in Bweremana.

• Humanitarian organizations are unable to fly in aid and staff as the Goma airport remains closed.

• Restoring power to Goma is a key priority to ensure continuing provision of clean water given the high risk of a rise in cholera cases.

• As IDPs are returning northwards to Rutshuru, unimpeded humanitarian access to the zone is crucial to continue providing much needed assistance.
