The EU announced €18.85 million in humanitarian assistance for the Central African Republic for 2019. This additional support brings EU humanitarian assistance in the country to more than €135 million since 2014.
Despite the new peace agreement signed in February, people continue to be affected by violence. The funding aims at helping conflict-affected people, preventing violence, tackling the food and nutrition crisis and supporting the delivery of aid.
Attacks against civilians led to mass displacements and breaking of their means of subsistence, mainly agriculture. Almost two thirds of the population has no access to health care, while access to basic social services depends largely on humanitarian actors.
