    Violence and Hunger Puts Kasai Region of DR Congo on the Brink of a Humanitarian Disaster (For the Media)

    The crisis in the remote Kasai region is the most alarming in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Thousands of people are reported to have been killed and buried in mass graves; more than a million have fled their villages since August 2016, with tens of thousands crossing into neighbouring Angola.  The displaced are in urgent need of assistance. Most are living with host families in Kasai, or in the forest, with little access to food or services of any kind.  WFP is extremely concerned by the lack of resources for the Kasai crisis. Despite this, WFP is launching operations to respond to the urgent food and nutrition security needs of the most vulnerable among the conflict-affected population.
