Central African Republic

The worst crisis most people have NEVER heard of

  Give now  

Bitter conflict has left thousands dead and driven nearly half a million people from their homes in the Central African Republic (CAR), the majority to poorly equipped camps.

More than half of the country’s 4.6 million population are in urgent need of food, water, sanitation and healthcare.

Tearfund has set up a new programme in the CAR to help the most vulnerable affected by the conflict. We’ve already distributed food, drinking water and everyday essentials to thousands of people who have been displaced. But the need is great and we want to help more in this desperately poor country. Please give and pray.
