1 Th e mission of the United Nations Offic
Th e mission of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) is to Coordinate the global emergency response to save lives and protect people in h umanitarian crises. We advocate for effective and principled humanitarian action by all, for all. www.unocha.org T he report is produced by OCHA DRC in collaboration with humanitarian partners. It covers the period from 2 8 to 2 9 May 2021 . 1 HIGHLIGHTS • Local authorities and humanitarian organizations responding to assist the displaced • EU allocates €2 million in emergency humanitarian funding for victims of DRC volcano eruption SITUATION OVERVIEW Following the 28 May Council of Ministers, the President of the Republic, Flix - Antoine TSHISEKEDI TSHILOMBO, asked the Government to redouble its efforts to improve humanitarian response and to create a substantial public service for civil protection and disaster prevention. He also instructed the Minister of Hydrocarbons to do everything possible to clear the g as from Lake Kivu and the Gulf of Kabuno. The hypothesis of a new eruption, on land or under the lake, has not been totally ruled out. A team of volcanology experts came to assess the situation and placed a camera in the crater to allow for proper monitori ng of the volcano's evolution. Another team of volcanological experts is expected on June 3 to continue to study the evolution of the volcano and strengthen the monitoring measures and cooperation between the OVG and these experts. It is possible that the frequency of seismic movements decrease more and more . Activities in Goma have slowed considerably since 24 May. 2 Supply problems and the associated price increases have had far - reaching repercussions, as Goma is one of the major supply hubs for localiti es in the area. In Sake, while on 26 May it was possible to buy 12 kg of cornmeal on the local market for 10,000 FC francs, on 28 Ma y it was only possible to buy 8 kg. In Rutshuru center, the price of a measure of maize almost doubled (from 800 to 1,500 FC ) between 26 May and 28 May. This trend was likely exacerbated in the main areas hosting displaced populations (notably Minova and Sake), due to the increased demand. 1 The information is collected from the partners on an ongoing basis, the data is therefore subject to change. 2 According to a REACH draft overview. DR Congo: Volcanic eruption in Goma Situation Report # 5 30 May 2021 OCHA mission on the Goma - Rutshuru axis. Traffic flow is now fluid where lava blocked the road on 22 May. 29 May , OCHA/Paul de Carvalho - Pointillart DRC Situation Report No. 5 | 2 United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs www.unocha.org Rapid Situation Assessment A rapid situation and need

2 s assessment ("go and see") was condu
s assessment ("go and see") was conducted by OCHA and humanitarian partners on 29 May in the localities of Sake, Minova , and Rutshuru . The figures from the authorities of the localities of the displaced persons are being prepared. Sake Since 22 May, the town of Sak e has recorded the arrival of displaced persons from Goma. They are in assembly centers, including schools, religious structures (churches and mosques), administrative facilities, and in communities that are ho sting a number of displaced people. To date, the number of displaced persons from the authorities is still pending. Followi ng the various exchanges the OCHA team had with local authorities, humanitarian partners present in the area, and displaced persons and families, the priority needs identified include water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food, health (maternal and child c are, medical and psychosocial care), shelter and NFI as well as protection (child protection, gender - based violence , PSEA). 15 suspected cases of cholera were recorded in the health zone of Kiroche. Some partners ( MSF, UNICEF, ICRC , UNHCR, and Youth Action for Life) are present in Sake and the response would need to be further strengthened. Their intervention so far includes medical care, water, sanitation and hygiene ( WASH ) , and the distribution of tarps. The protection monitoring mechanism was also activa ted on 28 May in the area. The Military Governor of North Kivu also provided multi - sectoral assistance (food, NFI , WASH) to the displaced population of Sake. Minova The town of Minova began receiving an influx of displaced persons from Goma on 26 May. They are sheltered in public assembly centers, churches, and community centers. When these displaced persons arrived, the local authorities set up a crisis committee composed of political and administrative authorities and leaders of religious denominations in order to assist the displaced through contributions. This allowed them to provide some basic necessities (bananas, peanuts) for one day. The displaced are in the Buzi grouping, in ei ght health areas (Minova, Kalungu, Kinyezire, Buhumba, Muchibwe, Bulenga and Bobandana). Displacements are still occurring and some commuting between Minova and Goma has been observed. The number of displaced people in Minova is still pending. Multi - sect oral priority needs identified by partners and authorities are : WASH , NFI , food security, health, shelter , and education. A lack of response to these needs risks worsening the situation for these displaced persons, particularly in terms of health and WASH . Rutshuru According to local sources, the majority of displaced people are in Kiwanja, followed by Rutshuru . Other areas are Binza, axe Bunagana, Rugali, Ntamugenga,

Rumangabo/Kabaya, Rugari, Kalengera, Vitshumbi and the Kanyabayonga axis . Surrounding the main localities, some families remain along the road, while moving back and forth , with some returns to Goma have been reported. F amilies expressed their wish to return as soon as the situation allows , nevertheless some indicated that they had lost their homes during the disaster. DRC Situation Report No. 5 | 3 United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs www.unocha.org T he reported needs are mainly in food, shelter/NFI ( bedding , blankets and mattresses) and WASH items ( water, latrines, basins, hygiene products ) . A lack of water in the locality of Kiwanja was also identified . In terms of protection, the presence of unaccompanied children is also reported, as well as people with disabilities. Regarding health aspects, the risk of cholera and measles epidemics was al so raised by local actors. Most displaced families reside with host families. No spontaneous sites were identified , neither any occupied public places (schools, churches) . Nevertheless, dozens of families have been present, mainly since 27 May , at the Bili ma stadium in Kiwanja and the Rugabo 2 stadium in Rutshuru, also identified by the authorities as registration sites. T he number of displaced f amilies on the Rutshuru axis remain unknown and will be communicated by the local authorities shortly . Two health facilities have been identified by MSF in Kiwanja and Rutshuru to provide free primary health care for displaced people, through reinforcement of medical capacities. A response in terms of hygiene and latrines is also underway , for people stayin g in the two stadiums of Kiwanja and Rutshuru. MONUSCO also provided displaced families in Kiwanja and Rutshuru with hot meals, water tanks, and latrines and also put five large tents in place . Some humanitarian actors are positioning themselves to provide chlorine for water disinfection on the sites and others conduct community radio sensitizations to sensitize parents regarding child protection. Several partners also conducted assessment missions on 29 May (UNICEF, WFP and World Vision) on the Rutshuru ax is in order to know the needs, particularly in terms of WASH and food security. Bukavu Three sites have been selected by the provincial authorities (Ndendere, Funu and Nyakavogo). Ndendere is already operational with sufficient capacity for the time being. As of 28 May , UNHCR reported 134 people present. The government has pre - positioned a bus at the port to transport arrivals to the Ndendere site. In accordance with needs, IOM could take charge of management of a second site, in support of provincial authorities. REGIDESO was contacted to assess the need for possible support to strengthen the drin

Child Protection The DRC Red Cross has launched activities in Rwanda, Bukavu and Minova for child protection. Particular attention is given to separated and unaccompanied children for referral and care to the relevant authorities (Protection/ Working Group Child Protection partners , ICRC and DIVAS). Logisti cs UNHAS has received special authorization from the provincial authorities to operate helicopter flights from Bukavu to Sake, Minova and Rutshuru , from 31 May . A wido wed woman and her three displaced children from the Majengo neighbourhood of Goma, who arrived on foot in Kiwanja and could not find a host family to house them. 29 May , OCHA/Paul de Carvalho - Pointillart DRC Situation Report No. 5 | 4 United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs www.unocha.org COORDINATION On May 29, OCHA deployed three teams for an initial rapid assessment of the situation and nee ds ("go and see") in three areas where displaced people are concentrated (Sake, Minova, Rutshuru). In Minova and Sake, humanitarian coordination was established by OCHA and in Rutshuru, a humanitarian coordination commission has been operational since 28 May with the presence of several sub - commissions (communication, health, humanitarian coordination, security). This emergency coordination structure is an addition to the permanent humanitarian coordination already in place at the local level on a weekly ba sis (before the current crisis) as well as clusters active in Rutshuru (protection and food security). FUNDING The European Union is allocating €2 million in emergency humanitarian funding to victims of the volcanic eruption in DRC. Priority sectors to be covered are emergency water supply and rehabilitation (in Goma), sanitation and hygiene, primary health care/ health services (including support to health facilities), psychosocial support, child protection and family reunification. This funding is in addit ion to the €160,000 allocated last week to support the Congolese Red Cross [ see press release ]. On 29 May, the Start Fund awarded 201,257 GBP (approximately US$ 285 , 000 ) to War Child UK, Tearfund , and AFEDEM (conditional offer) to work on water, sanitation and hygiene , child protection and gender - based violence in Goma, Sake, Minova, Kimbumba and surround ing villages.
