MSF Urges Immediate Scale-Up Of Humanitarian Assistance To Multiple Crises In DRC, Including Ebola Outbreak

Médecins Sans Frontières: Urgent humanitarian response needed on unprecedented crises in northeast DRC
“Multiple humanitarian crises are unfolding in Ituri province, northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo, and hundreds of thousands of people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, according to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). The recent upsurge in violence across the regions of Djugu, Mahagi, and Irumu have forced thousands to flee their homes. Despite MSF’s repeated calls on international aid organizations to scale up humanitarian aid, the majority of the displaced still haven’t received even the most basic assistance. … MSF urges for an immediate scale up of long-term humanitarian assistance, to prevent the loss of more lives and to ensure decent living conditions for all those who have been forced to flee” (6/27).
