In Southern Chad, a critical situation for people fleeing violence In CAR

Six months after the start of mass population movements between the Central African Republic (CAR) and Chad, the situation in transit sites in southern Chad remains critical. With the arrival of the rainy season and deteriorating living conditions, returnees need humanitarian assistance now more than ever.


Chad is an arid, low-income and landlocked country suffering from chronic food insecurity. Conflict in neighbouring countries has put additional pressure on already-limited resources, and Chad now hosts an estimated 450,000 refugees, primarily from Central African Republic and Sudan.
