Exodus from CAR results in regional food crisis: UN food agency

Published on 24 March 2014

The UN food agency said Friday that the exodus of almost 300,000 people from the Central African Republic (CAR) is creating a regional crisis in neighboring countries which are already short of food. Ertharin Cousin, executive director of the World Food Program (WFP), said while the international community urgently needs to step up and address the disaster in the CAR, support is also required for the regional refugee crisis. Cousin just finished a visit to the CAR's northwestern town of Bossangoa.
