report UN Children's Fund

posted on MAY 26, 2015 by NICOLAS NTEMUANENGU

The events that disturbed the CAR in recent years have pushed many people to flee the country and seek refuge in the DRC, especially in Equateur, a province on the CAR-DRC border.

Foreign and uprooted, refugee children are often confronted with problems related to nutrition and health, as well as education and protection. It must be emphasized that most of these children, far away from their homes and villages, find themselves deprived of schooling.

Les événements qui agitent la RCA depuis quelques années ont poussés beaucoup de personnes à fuir le pays pour se réfugier en RDC, dans une province voisine de la RCA : l’Equateur.

Etrangers et déracinés, les enfants y sont souvent confrontés à des problématiques liées d’une part à la nutrition et à la santé mais aussi d’autre part à l’éducation et à la protection. Il ne faut pas oublier que la plupart de ces enfants, puisque loin de leurs maisons et de leurs villages, se retrouvent privés d’école.

Internal displacement in the Central African Republic (CAR) has been driven over decades by coups, internal armed conflict, generalised violence, human rights violations and natural hazards. The government has an acute lack of authority. It is unable to provide even the most basic services in the country’s prefectures, and widespread impunity has allowed armed groups to proliferate. Though rich in natural resources, the country is chronically poor and ranks near to last each year on the UN Development Programme (UNDP)’s human development index.

Boda, Central African Republic | AFP | Monday 5/25/2015 - 03:26 GMT

by Patrick FORT

The outbreak of violence that plunged the Central African Republic into chaos in 2013 has left a legacy of suspicion, fear and hatred that still plagues places like the southern mining town of Boda.

"There's an invisible wall. It's as if we're in prison," says Bouburori Bindowo, deputy mayor of the town of around 11,000 people, whose Muslim residents, of whom he is one, live segregated from the often hostile Christian majority.
