UNHCR: Crisis in the Central African Republic has forced 200,000 people from their homes in less than two months
Feb 4, 2021
The United Nations refugee agency recently warned of high levels of violence and insecurity in the Central African Republic before and after elections in late December that have forced more than 200,000 people from their homes in less than two months. The UNHCR stresses that tens of thousands of people are facing dire living conditions.
The Democratic Republic of Congo has taken in tens of thousands of refugees from central Africa, while more than 13,000 have arrived in Cameroon, Chad and the Republic of Congo, UNHCR spokesman Dmitry Chesilkov said recently in Geneva. He says estimates and reports from local authorities show that there are already 92,000 Central African refugees in the Democratic Republic of Congo. They are spread out in 30 remote areas that are difficult to reach and have little access to aid. UNHCR is already stepping up its support but needs to mobilize more funds.
