As of 28 June 2018, a total of 15,425 refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) were registered at Kenani transit centre in the Luapula Province of Zambia.

• UNICEF and partners are supporting the Government of Zambia to provide life-saving services for all the refugees in Kenani transit centre and in the Mantapala permanent settlement area.

• More than half of the refugees have been relocated to Mantapala permanent settlement area.

• The set-up of basic services in Mantapala is drastically delayed due to heavy rainfall that has made access roads impassable.

• Discussions between UNICEF and the Government are under way to develop a transition and sustainability plan to ensure the continuity of services in refugee hosting areas.
