Interview with Executive Director Ertharin Cousin

Published on 21 March 2014

“I visited Bangui as well as Bossangoa, which is one of the largest cities in the country [Central African Republic]. In Bossangoa I had the opportunity to meet with the Bishop who is housing Catholics, Christian refugees, and the Iman, who is housing all the Muslim refugees. (..) Ninety-four per cent of farmers told us that they have no seeds; they have no tools. (..) We are coming onto the rainy season. This will make it impossible for WFP to move food onto the roads and into these different communities because the roads are impassable during the rainy season.”
