Thousands of people in the West African country, including refugees from neighbouring countries, struggle to get enough food.
For many years, Central African Republic has experienced significant armed conflict and constant political insecurity. Over half of the country’s population depends on humanitarian assistance.
Despite a peace and reconciliation agreement signed in February 2019, there are still 600,000 internally displaced people in the country. Given this instability, it has been extremely difficult to achieve economic growth or improve the public health system. The high levels of insecurity have restricted humanitarian access, making it one of the most dangerous countries on earth for aid workers.
Malnutrition also remains a major public issue, and it’s a leading cause of death for children under five years old.
