(Bangui, 24 novembre 2014): Une mission composée des membres de l’équipe humanitaire pays, du représentant du Ministère des affaires humanitaires et membres de la mission intégrée multidimensionnelle de stabilisation en Centrafrique a effectué une visite dans le sud-est du pays, à Zémio le 22 novembre pour évaluer la situation humanitaire après le déclenchement de violences intercommunautaires. La mission a appelé toutes les parties concernées à l’arrêt de la violence et à assurer la restauration de la cohésion sociale dans la région.
Over the past year, Bangui has changed beyond recognition. Entire neighbourhoods have been looted and emptied. More than 61,000 people who once had homes in the capital now live in 34 spontaneous sites across the city. Most of the city’s Muslim population has left. Communities have gathered, based on their faith, around churches or the central Mosque. Insecurity and fear prevent them from returning home.
(Bangui, 24 November 2014): A mission composed of Humanitarian Country Team members, a representative of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and the Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic visited Zémio on 22 November to assess the humanitarian situation after the outbreak of inter-community violence. The mission to the south east of the country called upon all parties involved to end violence and ensure the restoration of social cohesion in the region.
(Addis Ababa/Jeddah/N'Djamena, 21 November 2014): A high-level mission today wrapped up a week-long visit to Chad raising attention for the human suffering and calling for more engagement of the international community in the Central African Country.
The security situation countrywide remains volatile. Ex-Seleka elements living in Bangui’s Beal camp threaten to detonate the site if their demands are not met.
An eruption of violence started on 5 November in Zémio, Haut Mbomou Province, an area affected by the LRA, but that had not been impacted by the crisis so far.
Fourteen cholera cases have been confirmed following a cholera outbreak on 1 November along the CAR-Cameroon border.
An upsurge of violent attacks in Zémio (Haut Mbomou Province) was reported on 17 November where inter-community violence persists in the south east of the Central African Republic (CAR). The crisis began following the killing of a member of a community-at risk on 5 November. Retaliation included the burning of over 30 houses in the villages of Barh and Bogou, located around 40-45km from Zémio and the use of ammunition including grenades and automatic weapons.
Since January, humanitarian access continues to be hindered by various constraints; particularly violence against civilians including aid workers/assets, interference in the implementation of humanitarian activities and active hostilities. Since the beginning of the year, more than 1,120 security incidents have been recorded of which 109 or 10 per cent were direct violence against humanitarian organisations
The security situation in the Central African Republic remains highly volatile, with persisting violence including looting, mob violence and banditry. This consequently increases the vulnerability and needs of the people affected. Over 105 humanitarian organisations operating in CAR continue to provide immediate life-saving, multi-sectoral assistance to the estimated 2.5 million in need of humanitarian assistance including over 428,172 displaced people.
The situation in Bangui remains tense particularly around the Beal camp, where ex-Seleka elements threaten to blow up the site if their demands are not met. On November 16, shooting erupted in the area followed by looting, leading to an intervention of international forces. In the early hours of 17 November, groups were being formed in the same areas with the set-up of roadblocks.
The number of people in need of humanitarian assistance has risen by half a million to 6.6 million people in the period between November 2013 and October 2014. These 6.6 million people in need consist of 3.1 million IDPs, 0.7 million refugees, and asylum seekers, 1.2 million malnourished children aged under five and 1.6 million people who are food insecure. Needs are greatest in the Darfur region, Southern Sudan (South Kordofan, West Kordofan and Blue Nile States) and Eastern Sudan.
TRANSITION PLAN FINALIZED, SECURITY IMPROVES
Despite the lack of media interest in the CAR crisis, the fact remains that more than a million people have been forced from their homes and around half of the population is in urgent need of assistance as a result of violence over the past year. Among the most affected are children, who are increasingly suffering from malnutrition and at risk of being recruited by armed groups, and women, who are forced into marriage – at times when they are as young as 12.
