Rwanda Humanitarian Emergency

Rwanda hosts approximately 150,000 refugees, fleeing conflict and violence in neighboring countries, mainly the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Burundi. Refugees’ access to livelihood opportunities is severely constrained, especially in camps but also in urban areas. For women and girls, who make up the majority of refugees, early pregnancy and sexual and gender-based violence also pose major concerns. In addition, Rwanda has been experiencing floods and landslides triggered by heavy seasonal rains, causing widespread damage and loss of life. In response, UNFPA has been providing critical SRH and GBV services and information to affected women, girls and young people, and organizes training for local health providers.
