A visual journey through a year of renewed violence in an old conflict
Project Update17 December 2021
In late 2020, violence once again struck Central African Republic (CAR), a country that has undergone decades of intermittent conflict. We look back at some key moments through a photo essay consisting of eight chapters.
From people displaced by war; to sexual violence that is exacerbated by conflict; to emergency needs across the country; and repeated attacks on medical care; we take a look at the journeys of patients and those who have suffered through the conflict. We also highlight how our teams have supported the most vulnerable by providing essential healthcare, often under very difficult circumstances.
Tanguina Chela, one of 1.4 million people displaced from their homes in CAR “Since I was seven years old, the same story has always repeated itself. I have been on the move a long time due to the war. I have lost my belongings, my farmland, everything… I have children, but I don’t even know how I will feed them.”
