The protracted armed conflict and political instability in the great Lakes region, particularly the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has resulted in refuge influx and settlements in Zambia.

With the current and recent (2018) spike of DRC refugee influx, the pressure for more resources and assistance/Aid is ballooning on the Zambian Government, UNHCR and International NGOs. Meheba Camp in Kalumbila District of North Western Province (NWP), currently hosts the largest number (23,399) of People of Concern (POC) or refugees.

ADRA aims to contribute to food security and peaceful co-existence of settled refugees host communities in Meheba, Kalumbila District, North-Western Province, Zambia. By end of project, 270 households or 1350 persons (750 refugees & 600 host community) will have improved food security and are self-reliant in Meheba, Kalumbila.
