The UK has provided support to the Congolese nationals expelled from Angola through the pooled humanitarian fund for the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), to which DFID provided £40 million (approximately 60 per cent. of the funding) in the last financial year. A mission by the United Nations to visit the Congolese nationals in south-eastern DRC found that there was no immediate shortage of food and water but that non-food items, such as mattresses and blankets, were required. As a result, through the pooled fund rapid response mechanism, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) together with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has provided basic non-food assistance. The non-governmental organisation Caritas has also been funded through the pooled fund to provide transport for the Congolese nationals.
