The outbreak of violence in the Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in March 2017, triggered the flight of many people into Angola, and displaced many others inside DRC's borders. There are currently 80,698 refugees and asylum seekers in the country, including 35,000 registered  from the Kasai region of DRC. Seventy-five per cent of them are women and children.  

UNHCR works with a number of partners in Angola to ensure refugees are protected and have access to emergency shelter, food and water, sanitation, and healthcare including mental health support. In 2018, we will help 40,000 refugees and asylum-seekers to receive legal assistance in Angola.
