Central African Republic : Doctors Without Borders (MSF) distributes food to 10.500 displaced and vulnerable

MSF decided to carry out the food distribution, which is not a regular activity for its medical teams, as a preventive action, after detecting that the displaced people were receiving insufficient rations

Some 10,500 people in northern Central African Republic (CAR) have received emergency food supplies from international medical organisation Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

Since 22 December, teams have distributed nearly 100 tons of food in seven locations where displaced people are sheltering in the areas of Kabo, Gbazara and Moyenne Sido. Most fled their homes in the violence which engulfed the country two years ago, and have been unable to return since due to continuing insecurity.

MSF decided to carry out the food distribution, which is not a regular activity for its medical teams, as a preventive action, after detecting that the displaced people were receiving insufficient rations.

The UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) recently raised the alarm on the lack of funding for CAR, which has forced it to cut food assistance by almost half.
