Central Africa Appeal

Central Africa crisis

The Central African Republic is located at a migration crossroads in the centre of Africa. Bordering what are now six nation states, the area has historically seen huge migrations to and from its borders.

Violence in Central African Republic and neighbouring South Sudan has displaced about 1.8 million people across the region. Muslims, predominantly residing in the northern areas of the country and the capital, Bangui, are being driven from their homes by vigilante mobs and Christian militia.

The World Health Organisation says that the fatality rate for under-5s suffering from severe acute malnutrition typically ranges from 30 percent to 50 percent.

Despite holding considerable underground reserves of gold, uranium and diamonds, Central African Republic remains one of the poorest countries in Africa.

How you can help

iCharity has been appealing for funds to help our brothers and sisters in African countries, including the latest conflict in Central African Republic. We are in process of finding like-minded organisations that can help our Muslim brothers and sisters in the most affected areas.
