Burkina Faso

DRC has been present in Burkina Faso since 2013, initially to support the tens of thousands of Malian refugees fleeing the conflict there, but increasingly to support the growing numbers of internally displaced Burkinabe civilians. Currently, DRC supports conflict-affected populations in Burkina Faso, refugees, internally displaced people and host communities.

DRC in Central Sahel

04 Jul 2023

Why we are there

The conflict in Burkina Faso is evolving rapidly, and DRC will be here every step of the way to ensure those affected by the conflict can continue their lives in safety and dignity.

DRC is now among the leading humanitarian actors in the country, providing live-saving assistance and seeking durable solutions.

What we do

DRC currently has an operational presence in 4 of the 6 regions declared in emergency in 2021 (Centre-Nord, Nord, Sahel and Boucle du Mouhoun), with a coordination office in Ouagadougou. DRC also has an emergency response capacity that can be deployed throughout the country to address immediate needs following alerts shared by the humanitarian community, making DRC a key player in the rapid response in Burkina.

In addition, DRC is also implementing medium and longer-term programs, in partnership with international and national NGOs, but also with community-based organizations and state structures that aim to strengthen the protective environment of communities, social cohesion, access to basic services, and livelihoods in a sustainable manner.

Based on its community anchorage and flexible modalities, DRC is able to roll out integrated programs that address the needs of the most vulnerable, internally displaced populations, refugees and members of the host community, in urban and rural settings, including hard-to-reach areas.
