Central African Republic: Humanitarian Dashboard (as of 11 April 2014)

Persistent insecurity and attacks on civilians continued in various parts of the country. Entire villages were burned down and looted in northern Paoua (Ouham-Pende), prompting thousands of people, mostly women and children, to flee into the bush. At the same time, the vulnerability of affected population will increase with the onset of the rain and lean season. However underfunding is threatening ongoing humanitarian operations and there is a major risk of needing to downsize the humanitarian response
