Torrential rains in early February led to a mudslide in the displacement camp in Masisi center, killing 8 people and wounding 3 others. This tragic incident is part of the daily struggle for survival by internally displaced people (IDPs) in Masisi. Terrible roads and a fluid security situation have hampered humanitarian organizations from responding adequately to the needs of IDPs. With the recent arrest of CNDP rebel leader Laurent Nkunda however, access is again possible, and aid organizations must work to re-establish their presence and increase support to vulnerable people in the camps.
