Central African Republic (CAR) Situation Report No.19 (as of 2 April 2014)

Report
from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 02 Apr 2014

Highlights

• Because of insecurity, the emergency supply of drinking water to some 2,600 IDPs trapped in Bangui’s PK12 neighbourhood has been temporarily suspended.

• The upsurge in violence over the past two weeks in several neighbourhoods bordering Bangui’s airport led to the dramatic increase in IDP returns to displacement sites, as well as the repopulation of some empty sites.

• The latest IOM survey indicates a sharp decline in IDPs intentions to return home in the next four weeks.

• On 28 March, the HC launched a special Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) allocation of $10 million to strengthen humanitarian response outside Bangui. The priority sectors are health, nutrition, WASH, protection, shelter/non-food items, CCCM and the food security sector’s agricultural projects.
