Torrential rains have left about 56,600 people homeless in south-eastern Congo, the UN humanitarian coordinator OCHA said Monday.
Heavy downpours between January and March also inundated thousands of hectares of fields and interrupted the schooling of more than 1,000 children in Tanganyika district, according to the statement.
In the town of Kalemie, two people were seriously injured as a result of the flooding.
Nearly 8,000 people who have since returned home in the areas of Manono and Nyunzu are not receiving any humanitarian assistance, the UN said.
Almost half a million people are expected to need aid in Tanganyika district this year.
