Assisting with the basics of life in Central African Republic

Central African Republic is one of the poorest and most unstable countries in the world.

The 2013 crisis has turned into an inter-community conflict, leading to the total collapse of the already weak socio-economic infrastructure. Basic social services are non-existent.

The ICRC is extremely worried about the deterioration of the security and humanitarian situation.

Today, almost one fifth of the country's nearly five million population are either internally displaced or refugees. In 2018, heavy fighting between armed groups is likely to continue, exacerbating humanitarian needs.
