As fighting and instability continue across the Central African Republic, the humanitarian situation threatens to spiral out of control. At present, an estimated half a million people — many of them children — have been forced to flee their homes. They are vulnerable to disease, hunger and attacks by armed groups. To date, Save the Children has reached nearly 40,000 children, focusing on health, child protection and nutrition. In addition to our ongoing humanitarian programs, we are currently supporting clinics and hospitals and setting up new child protection spaces in the capital, Bangui, to meet the needs of the thousands of people who have been displaced by the violence.
