In the Central African Republic (CAR), a main obstacle for return of displaced people has been the destruction of their homes after they had initially fled. With the support of their community and our teams, displaced people can finally return home. CAR has been mired in crisis since 2013, when the Muslim-dominated ex-Seleka coalition took power, provoking violent clashes with the predominantly Christian anti-balaka group. This led to intercommunity violence, deeply affecting the southern province of Ndjoukou. Schools, health centres and houses were looted and burned by armed groups.

TENSIONS HAMPER HUMANITARIAN MOVEMENTS

At least 145 people and eight peacekeepers were wounded and 31 others, including a peacekeeper, were killed in the skirmishes in Bangui’s PK5 neighbourhood.
