The Central African Republic is suffering the worst crisis in its history, which began in December 2012. More than half the country’s population, some 2.5 million people out of a total of 4.6 million, relies on humanitarian aid merely to survive.
In this context, COOPI works to protect the most vulnerable: asylum-seekers and refugees, women who have suffered sexual abuse and communities that have been the target of ethnic-religious persecution.
COOPI combats hunger by distributing food and seeds; fights thirst by building wells and other infrastructure, as well as social exclusion and illiteracy by building schools, and providing psychosocial support to the victims of this indiscriminate violence.
Our NGO works primarily to support children, who are more than ever at risk of violence, abandonment, malnutrition and malaria. In addition, COOPI is the only NGO that manages disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration projects for child soldiers.
COOPI has been working in the Central African Republic since 1974. It has maintained a constant presence in the country since then.
