Overview

For decades, the Central African Republic has experienced conflict. New waves of sectarian violence have displaced at least a million people and stunted the nation’s growth. The International Rescue Committee is providing emergency assistance while also helping the people of CAR to rebuild their lives in safe, healthy and productive communities — laying a foundation for the country’s future.

How we help
