UN Says Has Only 9% of Funds Needed for Central African Republic

The United Nations has only 9 percent of the $515.6 million it appealed for in January to assist 1.9 million people in the Central African Republic, according to its Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

“The current funding level is too low to enable the effective provision of humanitarian assistance,” UNOCHA said in an emailed statement on Monday. “Furthermore, it does not cover emergency preparedness considering the upsurge of violence countrywide.”
