Brief decription of the project
Regional political instability and alarming signs of worsening conditions in the emerging camps of the project region forced Welthungerhilfe to react. Familiar with the area since 1997, three needs assessments were conducted in the 6 camps of Lubero and Rutshuru district in North-Kivu in 2008 to plan for a combined emergency and rehabilitation project (LRRD approach) with the financial support of USAID/OFDA partner. Targeting 6000 internally displaced vulnerable persons (IDPs) in the camps and those living within host-communities along the main axis of Kanyabayonga- Kikuku was completed with an economic component of Cash for Work (CFW) for the vulnerable villagers to balance the different interests of IDPs and the overburdened host communities.
