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.
The country continues to go through a humanitarian crisis. The combined effects of political violence and Covid-19 mean that 2.6 million people are in need of aid – that’s more than half the population.
At the end of 2020, over 640,000 people were internally displaced within the country and almost 600,000 people had left the country as refugees in neighbouring countries.
Malnutrition also remains a major public health issue and it’s a leading cause of death for children under five years old.
