The Democratic Republic of Congo is still recovering from years of war and political upheaval, and continues to face significant humanitarian challenges. In 2012, the DRC ranked 27th out of 79 countries on the Global Hunger Index. About 70 percent of the population lacks access to adequate food, while one out of every four children is malnourished (WFP 2012). Six out of eleven of the country’s provinces continue to experience general acute malnutrition rates above 10 percent; several provinces (Maniema and Kasai) have rates above 17 percent.
