Central African Republic - Displaced at Christmas
Thursday 26th Dec 2013 | Latest News, Africa
The renewed violence in the Central African Republic in recent weeks is accentuating an already dire humanitarian situation. Clashes in Bangui since 5th December has caused tens of thousands of people to flee and seek refuge wherever they can, in churches, in hospitals and even the airport runway.
Mother of 6, Mireille Koulimb, displaced from Ramandji district, sought refuge at the airport and says: "They are firing at anything."
Chantal Bouanga from Bangui adds: "I cannot go home. If things were secure, I would go home but they aren’t. Our children can’t even go to school, nor the teachers. We are here with teachers, and judges – everyone is here. "
Fervent Nordine who also fled Bangui states: "There are diseases here, bad smells. There are no toilets or anything. We are suffering from diarrhoea.”
The ICRC is trying to help deal with these urgent humanitarian needs by providing around 60,000 liters of water per day to those displaced. The ICRC and volunteers from the Central African Red Cross have built toilets, 16 of which are for children. They are also teaching people about hygiene awareness.
The ICRC has evacuated hundreds of injured and sick people, including children suffering from malaria and diarrhoea, as well as pregnant women.
The ICRC reminds the authorities of their responsibility to protect their population.
