(MSF) – More aid is urgently needed in the rural areas of Kasai, central Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), as people come out of hiding a year after conflict flared in the region, said international medical organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) today. MSF teams have seen widespread malnutrition amongst children, with rates of 10% of severe acute malnutrition in several areas, particularly in towns and villages badly hit by the violence, which first erupted in August 2016. People have recently begun to return to their homes after hiding for months in the surrounding forests, exposed to disease and with little to eat.
