Photo of the Week: Central African Republic - Kouango

By the end of 2014, thousands of people living in Kouango area, in southern Central African Republic (CAR), started to cross the Ubangi River looking for safety in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) after months of armed clashes in the area between rival militias. More than 20,000 locals fled to DRC and thousands more went to the nearby towns of Bambari and Grimari, north of Kouango. 

While MSF teams in DRC took charge of the incoming refugees, an emergency team in CAR has started an intervention focused on children, women and victims of violence in Kouango town and its surroundings.
