Moma Primary School, Nyunzu village
Displaced and host community children share classrooms in Moma Primary School.
NRC is evaluating 14 schools in Nyunzu village that need support, including Lwandwe primary school. If NRC helps, we will support with latrines, education kits for students and kits for teachers. They will possibly create two new classrooms, to help replace the ones in poor condition.
An upsurge in violence in several parts of DR Congo in 2015, has left over 1.7 million people to flee their homes this year alone; that’s over 5,500 people per day. This week the DR Congo was declared the worst affected by displacement in the world by the global analysts, IDMC. Tanganyika province, is one of the hotspots of the current crisis.
Despite the UN putting the world on notice about Congo’s crisis, little has changed since October. Money has only trickled in to help the 13 million people in need. Today the country is the second lowest funded of the world’s largest crises - less than half of the US$812 million aid appeal is funded.
The violence has prevented many families from accessing land and maintaining their livelihoods. 7.7 million people are severely food insecure, up 30 per cent in a year. Lack of access to clean water has led to a cholera outbreak that has killed some 600 people.
