Following her July 21 audience with President Faustin-Archange Touadera, U.S. Ambassador to the Central African Republic Patricia Mahoney announced that the United States will provide an additional 31 billion CFA, or $48 million, in emergency humanitarian assistance to the Central African Republic through our local partners.
This aid adds to the 91 billion CFA, or $140 million in humanitarian assistance the United States has already allocated to CAR in 2022.
The assistance is part of the United States’ efforts to promote peace and prosperity in partnership with the people of the Central African Republic and help those that have been displaced by violence. The additional funding will provide five months of humanitarian assistance to 350,000 vulnerable people, most of whom are internally displaced persons in the Central African Republic; facilitate the medical treatment for 150,000 children and mothers who suffer from malnutrition; and help provide shelter and improve housing for 35,000 people. This assistance will also strengthen health services and support health facilities in the Haute-Kotto, Ouaka and Vakaga prefectures.
