The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for International Development,

I would like to enquire into the level of assistance provided by the UK in alleviating the suffering of the millions of refugees and IDPs in both South Sudan and CAR. What has the UK contributed to encourage peace, security, DDR, the protection of children from the effects of conflict, the release and reintegration of child soldiers, and in reducing Gender-based violence. The IRC recently detailed in its report that only 21% of the humanitarian aid required, to lessen the effects of the conflict and violence, has been received. How much has the UK contributed to that total? All information relating to DfID's efforts in this region will be appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Adshead

Department for International Development
