UNHCR and Better Shelter
UNHCR implemented 336 Better Shelter units in the Central African Republic (CAR) in the end of 2018. The shelters are being used as medical and registration centers and community infrastructures such as helpline, refectory, youth center, security post and partners area.
In 2018, the Central African Republic (CAR) continued to face instability and violence, resulting in an increase in internal displacement, with 613,031 IDPs registered in 2018. The instable security situation started in 2013 when groups took control of part of the country, leading to ongoing fighting and human rights violation on a daily basis.
