Displaced Muslim Community in CAR

16 Jun 2016

Violent fighting broke out in Bangui on 5 December 2013 and violence soon spread throughout Central African Republic (CAR). The violence forced many thousands of Muslims to flee the country in fear, and those that stayed were trapped in enclaves. The Central African Republic (CAR) faces a situation of chronic and prolonged health emergency. The political crisis and violence that shook the country since 2013 have exacerbated the shortage of health services as a whole and 72 percent of health facilities were damaged or destroyed.
