Gallery: Bangui, a displaced city

Displaced people in Bangui, the capital of Central African Republic (CAR) are living in fear, feeling too unsafe to return to their homes.

Half a million people have been displaced in Bangui, fleeing the fighting that has been ongoing since December 2013. The UN estimates that the number of displaced people throughout CAR could be more than 900,000 people, in a country twice the size of France and with only 4.6 million inhabitants.

MSF is assisting people in three camps for displaced people in the city: at the Mpoko camp at the airport (100,000 people), Boy Rabe (35,000) and Don Bosco camps (35,000). Humanitarian aid has been slow to get to the displaced people.
