STORYLINE
Displaced people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are in dire need of shelter after escaping violence in the east of the country. UNHCR and partners are providing shelter but as the situation continues to deteriorate, more assistance is needed.

Ongoing conflict in North Kivu alone has forced nearly two million people to flee their homes. More than100,000 displaced people were assisted with emergency shelters in 2020 - and almost 14,000 so far in 2021 - but needs remain high as attacks by armed groups continue to displace people in the province, with many forced to flee multiple times. Women and children are particularly vulnerable.

Elodie and her children fled home in eastern Congo after armed groups attacked their village

SOUNDBITE (English) Elodie, Internally displaced person:
“My children and I walked for two days on foot. We had no food and we had no money to pay for a vehicle. My children’s feet were swollen and our feet hurt because the journey was so long.”

They lived in a leaking tent for nine months, UNHCR and partners are providing food, healthcare and durable shelter
SOUNDBITE (English) Ibrahima Diane, Head of Field Office, Beni, UN Refugee Agency:
“We assist in emergency, we provide xxx to IDPs who were recently being displaced, so that they can themselves have built some emergency shelter, but also we adapted to the condition of the area by providing support to the communities so that they can have shelter similar to what is in the community and that facilitate their integration in the hostel communities in the area.”

SOUNDBITE (English) Elodie, Internally displaced person:
“These houses help us a lot and we are safe. Where we were staying, we were rained on, all the time and we had nowhere to sleep. Now we are settled.”
