Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mutefu, Kasai province. 12 December 2017.  With the hunger crisis in the conflict-ridden Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) rapidly deepening, 3.2 million people – one quarter of the population – do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.  Most internally displaced families have now missed two consecutive planting seasons. Many of the most vulnerable now eat little more than a meal a day – typically just cassava root and leaves – that is lacking in protein, vitamins and minerals. Survival measures adopted by the displaced include begging, prostitution and the eating of seeds that should be planted.  WFP is providing full-ration food distributions (cereal, pulses, vegetable oil and salt) to priority families, identified as particularly vulnerable. Since October, WFP has supported over 312,000 conflict-affected people, with plans to reach 1.2 million people in 2018.

Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), nutritional center of Kalonda, Tshikapa territory (Kasai region), 05 December 2017  Malnutrition still a huge challenge in Kasai region.  WFP assistance started mid-October. While 104 MAM cases were/are under treatment out of the 64 planned, 100 additional children tracked as MAM were not supported. They are on the waiting list.  WFP planned to assist the center for 2,5 months but more children are arriving requiring thorough treatment (MAM and MAS). WFP has reached and outdated the objective of treating 2300 children suffering of MAM in the Kasai province since end October 2017. MAS cases are supported by ACF/UNICEF at this center.

In the Photo: Mulamba Lusazo 4 years old, 8.8 Kg, 124 BP MAM; he received already a first cycle of Plumpy Sup rations and a second one today; another test in 2 weeks’ time should confirm that he’ll have recovered. His mother Wivine Ngalula flee from her village 6 months ago when her village was attacked. She left with her 3 sons but lost contact with her husband since. They walked for 14 days in the bush before reaching Tshikapa town to find refuge with an aunt of her. In the bush, they had not much to eat except “taking” some manioc from other people’s field.  Her aunt is selling flour at the local market but has 6 children on her own and they struggle to make ends meet. “I can see my son’s status has really improved since he started eating Plumpy Sup doses. I’m so relieved and thankful to WFP”. Some people have started returning to her village. She’s not planning to return because her husband would be the only one to take the decision. However, he has disappeared.   Photo: WFP/Jacques David

In the Photo: Mbumba 13 years old, and her young sister Mamba, 2 years old; coming from Mayimunene village. They were playing in the garden with friends when the village was attacked. Their mother was cooking the meal. Their mother and father were killed during this attack. Mbumba just had time to grab Mamba and flee with the friends. They walked 3 days and found refuge in a church of Tshikapa. Neighbors and parishioners supply with some food but not enough. This is why Mamba was brought to the nutritional center where she has been treated for MAS by ACF and UNICEF. She hasn’t fully recovered: she’s still MAM but can’t be treated because the number of beneficiaries has already been reached. She’s now on the center’s waiting list to be treated if an extension of this nutritional program is agreed.  Photo: WFP/Jacques David
