Central African Republic facing humanitarian funding shortfall
The Central African Republic (C.A.R.) where we've begun working this year, is facing one of the world's worst humanitarian funding shortfalls - according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
The conflict in the Central African Republic is one of the world's forgotten crises, and many of its citizens are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. Two in five children are chronically malnourished, and the majority of the population don't have access to clean drinking water or adequate health facilities.
