Central African Republic

Country Program

Following a March 2013 military coup, the Central African Republic saw an escalation of violence that often targeted civilians.

In CAR since 2013, LWF World Service is responding to the humanitarian crisis in the country by assisting internally displaced persons (IDPs), local communities, and returnees to build resilience through cross-border programming in the Nana Mambere and Mambere Kadei Prefectures. The country program provides psychosocial support and protection through Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention and child protection actions and activities. Projects are implemented through a community-based approach. In 2021, more than 88,000 people were supported through Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) interventions, distributions of relief goods, livelihoods, and food assistance.

LWF CAR’s work relies on three programmatic areas: Livelihoods, Quality Services and Protection & Social Cohesion. Additionally, the country program focuses on Gender Justice and Climate Justice as particular areas where we want to increase our impact. These programmatic areas underlie the 2019-2024 global stategy.
