Nyarugusu camp is home to nearly 65000 refugees, mainly Congolese and few Burundians. The GBV program is designed to ensure women and girls are better protected and empowered to access opportunities, services, and support responsive to their needs.  A key element of IRC’s GBV programming is the provision of survivor centred comprehensive case management including psychosocial support to GBV survivors who access services.  Currently in Kasulu, the IRC has a team of 61 national staff,5 International staff,25 GBV refugee staff and over 100 refugee staff from other sectors.
