According to the World Food Program, thousands of people are desperate for basic food and nutrition in Congo's Kasai province. The region is in the grip of conflict since fighting broke out between militias and the government.
Fighting in South Sudan has prevented food production, displaced communities and disrupted markets. According to a new UN report, the country's hunger crisis has worsened significantly over the past year.
The UN accused Kabila's government of backing a militia that is killing innocent people in the troubled Kasai region. DR Congo expert Phil Clark of SOAS says the UN has limited leverage to change things on the ground.
Kasai is a major trouble spot in Democratic Republic of Congo. Over the last eight months, 400 people have died in clashes between militia and government troops. UN investigators have registered 40 mass graves.
Yemen has found itself in the middle of a humanitarian catastrophe. Even as the country battles with crumbling infrastructure, hunger and disease, the Saudi Arabia-led military intervention continues.
