CAR alert as more than 60 per cent need urgent humanitarian assistance

26 November 2018

Renewed violence in Central African Republic (CAR) that has included the torching of displacement camps and set back aid efforts to parts of the embattled country will not diminish the international community’s “duty of hope”, the UN top humanitarian official there has said.

In an interview with Daniel Johnson of UN News, Najat Rochdi explains that although nearly three million people are in need of assistance and protection, out of 4.6 million, there are some positive signs, including the return of previously displaced communities to areas of the south-west.
