Thanks to yearly contributions of more than €1 billion from the European Union and its Member States, the UN World Food Programme provides assistance to tens of millions of vulnerable people in more than 50 countries each year. Central Africans who have sought refuge in Cameroon are amongst those benefitting from the EU-funded food aid. Hadidja is one of them.
The inter-agency Regional Refugee Response Plan (RRRP), led by UNHCR, was first launched in April 2014 to address the L3 emergency in CAR and the significant numbers of refugees who had fled to the neighbouring countries of Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Republic of Congo, since 5 December 2013. Thanks to the coordinated efforts of all actors, the most critical phase of the emergency was stabilized by July 2014.
