The Central African Republic (CAR) is in the grips of a humanitarian crisis of catastrophic proportions. Ethno-religious violence and political instability have left the country's entire population vulnerable and more than 2 million people in need of humanitarian aid.
Men, women and children continue to be killed. Homes, clinics, hospitals and schools have already been destroyed. The wounded continue to die slow deaths and their dead continue to remain unburied.
UN: Central African Republic at risk of becoming the world's largest forgotten humanitarian crisis
Humanitarian assistance programmes both for the Central African Republic and the Regional Refugee Response plan remain dramatically underfunded, with funding levels of only 14 per cent for programmes inside CAR and 9 per cent of the refugee programmes in the neighbouring countries.
Claire Bourgeois, the UN's Humanitarian Coordinator in the strife-torn country stated "Violence between various armed groups continues to plague especially in the central part of the country preventing many people from returning home. The transitional authorities, with support of the international community, are struggling to restore law and order, which allowed some to return to other parts of the country.
Where will your donations go?
The donations will be going towards supporting 25 families for 1 month. It costs £100 per family per month to provide them with all the provisions that they have at the refugee camp. They receive housing in solid homes (not tents), proper shower and toilet facilities as opposed to a ditch in the ground, food, water, medical care, an education for the children and we have also constructed a purpose built Masjid.

Why Islamic Help?
Islamic Help has carried out a major food and aid distribution programme at its camp for refugees from the Central African Republic. A team from the UK joined forces with staff at the camp in Garoua Boulai, Cameroon, for the project which ensures all the refugees in the camp have enough food to sustain them for a month.
