No Transparency, no Trust: Community perceptions of humanitarian aid
Ground Truth Solutions is supporting the humanitarian response in DRC to listen to and act on the views of crisis-affected people. We do this through a combination of quantitative and qualitative data collection, dialogue and advocacy with the diverse stakeholders involved in response efforts.
In July 2023, we spoke to 1,134 people in the eastern provinces of Ituri, North Kivu and South Kivu — the focus of the humanitarian response — to capture their perceptions of the aid they receive. Our sample included internally displaced people (IDPs) in camp and non-camp settings, returnees, and host community members. This report outlines findings from our second perception survey, conducted in partnership with Victim’s Hope DRC. The first was conducted in October 2022, and a report of
that initial survey is available on our website.
