In March 2017, the Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) suffered an outbreak of violence causing internal displacement, with many also fleeing to Angola. It was estimated at the time that over 70,000 refugees were hosted in Angola, out of which 37,608 are from the DRC.

In support of its operations on the field and to guarantee basic services and protection, UNHCR implemented 544 RHUs in Dundo, in the Northern part of Angola.
