The current conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is having a massive impact on the population. Around 1.3 million people are displaced. HelpAge has responded to displacement of approximately 250,000 people in North Kivu. So far, we have directly supported 12,400 households and indirectly helped 30,300 by providing emotional support and work opportunities through "age friendly spaces" (places where older people feel comfortable and secure), offering inter-generational activities and working with medical organisations including Merlin and the Ministry of Health so they can provide better care for older people.
