How e-vouchers are transforming market shopping in DRC

DR Congo has the sad honour of topping the list of countries with the most internally displaced people. More than half a million of the 3.8 million displaced live in the North Kivu province, where a whole host of armed groups continue to terrorise the population. With populations constantly on the move, EU humanitarian funds are channeled towards appropriate forms of emergency assistance.

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is piloting the distribution of e-vouchers and organises food fairs. This is a fast and safe way of providing both the displaced and host communities with food and basic household items.
