DRC has slipped out of the headlines, even though the same number of people are in need as in Syria. Violence, disease and malnutrition are part of daily life in large areas of the country. By the end of 2017, a total of 4.5 million Congolese were internally displaced, and around 700,000 had fled to neighbouring countries. Its conflicts are fuelled by ethnic rivalries, the struggle over natural resources and lack of government control. This image shows the Katanika displacement settlement, home to 70,000 people, most of whom fled violent inter-ethnic clashes.
