18 months of horrific bloodshed in Central African Republic (CAR) left more than 400,000 people internally displaced and some 200,000 fleeing into neighboring countries. In February 2014 there were more than 62,000 people from CAR registered as refugees in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) with almost 90% of them living in three refugee camps located in the Province of Equateur, North-Western DRC – Mole camp in the town of Zongo, Inke camp in Gbadolite and Boyabu camp in Libenge.
