STORYLINE:

Over 200,000 people have been displaced in the Central African Republic in less than two months since election-related violence erupted in December 2020. Some 100,000 people are internally displaced according to figures compiled by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and many more have fled to neighbouring countries.

Refugee arrivals into the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have reached 92,000 according to local authorities and some 12,600 people have crossed into Cameroon, Chad, and the Republic of Congo. Most refugees are living in remote, hard-to-reach areas close to the rivers in dire conditions without basic shelter and facing acute food shortages. Funding for UNHCR’s humanitarian response is already critically low and under severe pressure as the numbers of refugees and their needs have continued to increase.
