"central african republic emergency": 1 results 

Central African Republic, 17 September 2013  At the end of a two-day visit to the Central African Republic (CAR), the UN World Food Programme (WFP) Regional Director for West Africa, Denise Brown, says that the organization is committed to scaling up food assistance to people displaced by conflict in CAR.  Brown visited CAR to see first-hand the situation of vulnerable people in dire need of food assistance. In Bozoum, 400 km northwest of the capital Bangui, she met beneficiaries among thousands of people who have fled conflict in Bossangoa.  Currenttly up to 500,000 people are estimated to need immediate food assistance and this figure is likely to increase as the planting season has been disrupted by conflict and displacement.  WFP is re-opening its offices in the north eastern and western parts of the country and using mobile teams to reach people in areas that remain insecure.
