Humanitarian crisis - Situation report 27 March - 19 April 2018
The humanitarian situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has remained the same during the reporting
period. It has been characterized by displacement, Congolese communities continued to flee violence in Ituri and North Kivu
to mainly Uganda; malnutrition, especially among children; gender-based violence; and outbreaks of communicable
diseases, mainly cholera.
On 13 April 2018, a pledging conference was organized in Geneva by OCHA, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the
European Union on the DRC. The aim of the conference was to boost the funding for the humanitarian crisis in the country.
At the conference, international donors announced that they will support the humanitarian assistance in DRC with USD 528
million during 2018.
IOM’s appeal for 2018 amounts to USD 75 million. Currently, the appeal is only 11 per cent funded with USD 8.3 million
received since January 2018.
