DRC advocates for the rights of refugees and the displaced people and works to ensure protection of the most at-risk and marginalised people. We work to prevent and respond to the risks and consequences of violence, coercion and deprivation, including through legal assistance, child protection, prevention and response to gender-based violence and psycho-social support. We support people affected by conflict and displacement and their ability to claim and enjoy their human rights. We do this in an inclusive, rights-based and empowering manner. We work with communities and civil society to strengthen capacities, while supporting and holding states and non-state actors to account.
