Oxfam says concern is growing over the potential impact of cyclone Mahasen on people displaced by ethnic conflict in the Western state of Rakhine in Myanmar.
Tens of thousands of people who have fled fighting in the largest displacement in Darfur in recent years face a severe shortage of clean water and sanitation services, Oxfam warned today.
To provide water to over 45,000 displaced Congolese in the Bulengo Camp, in DRC, Oxfam set up a water piping system to pump water straight from Lake Kivu, into a tank and to the taps.
Over 700,000 vulnerable according to UN as North Kivu, in DRC, is hit by increased militarization, poor harvest & little access to clean water.
Oxfam's Louis Belanger reports from Mugunga camp in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, where we are supplying water and sanitation to 50,000 people who have recently fled the ongoing conflict.
As the humanitarian crisis in eastern Congo grows, with thousands of people fleeing new fighting in the past 48 hours, Oxfam is stepping up the supply of life-saving aid to more than 80,000 people in and around Goma.
