Update: UNICEF in the Central African Republic

Dear Friend,

With over 2.9 million people in need, including 1.5 million children, the Central African Republic (CAR) is facing one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, given the proportion of the population in need of assistance.

Thanks to your support, UNICEF continues to focus on the protection needs of children, including their release from armed groups, reunification with their families and the provision of psychosocial support, while scaling up programming addressing sexual exploitation and abuse. UNICEF will maintain gender-sensitive water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities and services on settlements for displaced people across the country and improve immunization rates in crisis-affected areas. Activities also support the resilience of children and their communities, including through cash-based approaches in emergency situations, and strong accountability to affected populations.

Thanks to contributions like yours, UNICEF and partners reached the following various programmatic goals, as of August 2019:

  • More than 18,000 children with severe, acutre malnutrition admitted for therapeutic care;
  • More than 30,000 children vaccinated against measles;
  • Nearly 210,000 crisis-affected people accessing safe water;
  • Nearly 53,000 children reached with psychosocial support, including access to child-friendly spaces;
  • Nearly 1,000 children released from armed groups benefiting from socioeconomic reintegration and support;
  • More than 76,000 boys and girls in crisis-affected areas accessing education

UNICEF will continue working to ensure children in the Central African Republic survive and thrive. From access to health and nutrition services to education opportunities, access to safe water and essential psychosocial support, your contribution is vital.

In Partnership,
Whitney Simon
