While some areas of CAR have stabilized over the past year, there are currently more than 30,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) in the town of Bambari, and many more dispersed throughout the surrounding rural areas, hiding miles from the main roads for safety. While conditions have improved in some other parts of the country – to the extent that many IDPs are returning home, such as in the capital, Bangui – the situation in Bambari remains volatile.

The Central Africa Republic has been embroiled in civil conflict since a rebel movement from the north descended on the capital, Bangui, and overthrew the government in December 2013. While stability has since improved in some parts of the Central African Republic, the situation in the town of Bambari remains volatile.

In September 2013, fighting between the Armed Forces of the Philippines and a Muslim rebel group in the port city of Zamboanga on Mindanao forced 120,000 people - primarily minority Muslims - to flee. More than a year later, tens of thousands remain displaced, living in deplorable conditions.
