Caption : Kananga, central prison. The work in the kitchen starts early in the morning. Everything must be clean before handing food and ustensils to the detainees who are in charge of the preparation of food. "I arrive at 7:30am. After having opened the kitchen, I start calculating the food rations before the distribution", explains a storekeeper working in the prison facility.

Description : In the prisons of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), feeding detainees can be a challenge because of food stock shortages. In 2020, the ICRC initiated a food aid emergency program with the agreement of the Congolese authorities. This program targeted five prison facilities and aimed at bringing aid to detainees, some of whom were exposed to malnutrition.
