Description : ICRC website, article, 17.12.2018 «More than 7,000 families deported from neighbouring Angola and now back in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have received financial assistance in the border town of Kamako, in Kasai Province. This support will enable them to pay for their travel to be reunited with their loved ones or to improve their living conditions. Ideally, most of these families would leave Kamako - where they arrived without the means to support themselves. But with no money, it's hard to move on. "We could have made a short-term difference by distributing small amounts of food," explains the ICRC's Bruno Mesureur. "But since most people want to leave, there's no point giving them more to carry. By handing out cash, we give them the choice. Either they buy what they need, or they continue their journey."»
