Humanitarian Crisis Situation Report | 17 May - 03 July 2018

The situation in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has largely remained the same since the last reporting period. The country is still characterized by continued violence between armed groups and the Congolese army. Equally, the humanitarian situation has remained the same, characterized by displacement and urgent humanitarian needs in all areas such as food security and protection.

Kilya village, in North Kivu province, Beni territory, has experienced an influx of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) since mid-March 2018. Approximately 4,200 IDPs have arrived to Kilya from neighbouring villages due to attacks by armed groups in their villages (source: OCHA 18 June 2018). These IDPs were reported to live in dire conditions and are in need of humanitarian assistance, in particular food assistance and non-food items (NFIs). The same situation was reported in the Hombo region in the south-east territory of Walikale, also in the province of North Kivu. Following clashes between armed groups approximately 2,670 IDPs have fled their villages to Hombo (source: OCHA 18 June 2018). As the case in Kilya, these IDPs were in need of humanitarian assistance and the last assistance distributed in Hombo dates back to January 2018.
