Central African Emergency



Fresh violence tears families away from their homes

In one of the world’s poorest countries, fresh violence in the Central African Republic has brought death and destruction. The emergency is spreading to the region, which already hosts more than 630,000 Central African refugees.

Most refugees are fleeing to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, crossing river in canoes. They arrive exhausted, with few to no belongings.

To make matters worse, refugees arrive in very remote areas with scarce resources. Many people lack even the basics to survive. Communities hosting refugees are being stretched to breaking point. They urgently need water, shelter, food, access to health and adequate sanitation to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases. Many also need psychosocial support to heal the trauma they have been through. 

UNHCR teams are on the ground, registering new arrivals, delivering life-saving aid, protection and assistance to people who have fled their homes. But it’s not enough. Hundreds of thousands of people are still in need of support. We need your help to reach them.

Summary of donation information

About us:

UNHCR – The UN Refugee agency : The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve their problems worldwide. On the following year on July 28th, the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the legal foundation of helping refugees and the basic statute guiding UNHCR’s work, was adopted.

The primary purpose of UNHCR is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. The agency also has a mandate to help stateless people.

In an effort to to protect refugees and to promote solutions to their problems, UNHCR seeks to reduce situations of forced displacement by encouraging states and other institutions to create conditions which are conducive to the protection of human rights and the peaceful resolution of disputes. UNHCR works in partnership with governments, regional organizations, international and non-governmental organizations to achieve these objectives.
