The humanitarian situation remains dire. 2.6 million people need humanitarian assistance and protection, while 1 out of 4 Central Africans had to leave their homes. CAR remains one of the most dangerous countries in the world for humanitarian workers. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exacerbating existing vulnerabilities. From January to August, 267 incidents affected humanitarian personnel, with 2 humanitarian workers killed and 20 injured.
Despite the challenging operating environment, humanitarian actors under the 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan have been able to deliver life-saving assistance to 1,332,726 people in at least one sector of intervention.
