The Central African Republic (CAR) conflict, which started in 2013 between the government and armed groups known as Seleka and Anti-Balaka, has been forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee the country and seek refuge in the Equateur Province North of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Over 60.000 refugees have been benefitting from the UNHCR's protection and assistance in DRC since 2013.
At the Boyabu camp (in the middle of the Equatorial forest, North of Libenge), 9761 people are currently surviving in precarious conditions. Although 17 hectares of land were allocated by DRC authorities for agriculture, seed shortage makes growing anything barely possible and most refugees still dependent on food aid, lack of diversity in supplies causing dietary deficiencies.
