Confrontations between armed groups and direct attacks against villages continued over the past week in the north-western part of the country, notably in Grimari (Ouaka), Dekoa (Kemo), Bamatara and Botokon (Nana-Gribizi). Thousands of people fled their home and took refuge in the bush or in religious sites when their villages were attacked or to avoid being caught in cross fire during hostilities opposing various armed militias. In order to strengthen the response outside Bangui, the Humanitarian Coordinator launched on 28 March a second round of allocation from the Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) amounting to $10 million. The priority sectors are health, nutrition, WASH, protection, shelter/non-food items, CCCM and agriculture.
