In the west of the country, in Bouar, where more than 12,000 people are internally displaced, Action Against Hunger teams are working to provide safe and drinking water. Six bladders, mobile water tanks, have been installed. Four in sites and two on trucks for supply. A total of six sites are supplied with drinking water.
“On a daily basis, we provide water for about 11,000 people, says Lambert. We were already present in Bouar with our RRM team because it is a region where humanitarian needs are present. We were carrying out food distribution activities as well as mental health and practical care activities. Over there, 18% of new-borns weigh less than 2.5 kg at birth. With the new displacements, the food insecurity already present in this area, and the lack of access to care, there is a fear of an increase in severe acute malnutrition among children. The provision of drinking water, beyond an essential need for everyone, reduces the risk of diarrhoeal diseases, which are often a factor that causes children to become malnourished. »
Emergency response activities for IDPs were supported by UNICEF in Lithon, MSF, ICRC and UNICEF in Bouar.
