According to United Nations, half of the population in Central African Republic is in need of humanitarian assistance after an increase in violence since September has displaced more than 400 000 people.
The UN humanitarian office said on Thursday that funding has been low, with only 5% of the nearly $400m requested met so far this year. It says people in need have received half-rations of food.
The UN says the low funding means humanitarian agencies, which manage 56% of the country’s health infrastructure, are reviewing their presence there.
Violence continues in parts of Central African Republic, which descended into fighting between Christians and Muslims in 2013.
