The Central African Republic is slipping deeper into crisis. With almost half the population of 4.6 million people in need of emergency aid, and with no functioning government in CAR, people are living in fear in the bush without food, hygiene, shelter or healthcare.

Violence in the capital, Bangui, has been raging since the 5th of December 2013 and security is proving to be a challenge for our teams. Despite this, MSF has treated 2,340 wounded people and provided 21,630 general consultations in Bangui since then.   

As well as our emergency response in the capital, we have three other emergency interventions in Bossangoa, Bouca, and Bria, and seven regular projects running in Batangafo, Boguila, Carnot, Kabo, Ndéle, Paoua and Zémio. New projects are also expected to open soon in Bangassou, Ouango and Berbérati.

Here, MSF staff speak about their experiences in CAR.
