DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO (DRC)
In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), more than two million children are at risk of dying from severe acute malnutrition if they do not receive the help they need.
The United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock will visit the country from 11 to 13 March 2018, where several provinces have witnessed a deterioration in humanitarian conditions in recent months.
Of these two million children at risk of famine, nearly 300,000 children are in the Kasai region.
Years of instability and conflict in the DRC have fueled one of the world’s most complex humanitarian crises. To date, nearly 4.5 million people have been displaced, making DRC the African country most affected by internal displacement.
Calm the tensions to open the paths of dialogue and consensus. Favor the international humanitarian aid and sustainable solutions for a future in DRC in harmony and without violence.
