Drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, enhancing community prevention mechanisms, protection and risk reduction
Conflict in the Central African Republic
Increased fighting between armed groups in the Central African Republic forced thousands to flee their homes at the end of November. More than 10,000 people found shelter at an improvised site inside the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA). An estimated 1,200 other families have found shelter with host families in various Bria neighbourhoods.
The state of hygiene and sanitation services at the improvised site is critical, while a lack of latrines, showers and water sources only exacerbates the situation. The influx of displaced people in host communities has increased pressure on existing infrastructure, and has required the construction of a new refugee site near the MINUSCA base.
Proposed Humanitarian Response
Provide safe access to water, hygiene and sanitation for women, girls, boys and men affected by the conflict, in centres for displaced people and in Bria neighbourhoods.
