In the Mpati area in North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is implementing an assistance programme funded by the European Commission's Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations department.
The programme aims to improve the lives of displaced populations and the most vulnerable host families by offering education, food security and legal assistance. The two ongoing EU-funded programmes in North and South Kivu provinces, implemented by NRC, reach a total of 174 675 people.
