For the past 18 months, OCHA has worked relentlessly to garner support for the people of the Central African Republic (CAR) by advocating with donors for funding for urgent aid, with UN member states for the deployment of security forces, with humanitarian partners for scaling up their capacity to respond and more broadly, for the general public to care.

We must not allow the attention on CAR to fade. We need to continue telling the story of those affected by the conflict, forced to leave their home, fleeing into the forest and to makeshift camps. The killings continue, the violence is not stopping. The plight of an entire nation cannot be forgotten.

The Campaign, available at in English and French, tells the story of the people of CAR through a powerful visual narrative on the crisis, compounded by compelling photos, videos, data and a call for action.

Your support is key to our efforts. Please help us spread the word.
