U.S. Continues To Support Humanitarian Efforts In CAR

In a post on the State Department’s “DipNote” blog, USAID Assistant Administrator Nancy Lindborg describes a recent trip to Central African Republic (CAR), where conflict has caused “the suffering of the more than one million women, children, and men who have been forced from their homes as a result of the recent violence in a country already struggling with chronic poverty.” She continues, “…On the heels of my visit to CAR, I traveled to Brussels, accompanied by colleagues from the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, where the international community collectively pledged nearly $500 million in new funds to address the rising humanitarian crisis in CAR, including $54 million from the United States to provide urgent food, water, and medical assistance to the millions of Central Africans in need as well as support for courageous religious and community leaders who are promoting calm and peace among their communities…” (1/31).
