Since December 2012, the Central African Republic (CAR) has been affected by the worst crisis in its history due to the indiscriminate violence against the population caused by two armed groups, specifically ex-Seleka and Antibalaka and their subgroups.

One million of people in the CAR live in conditions of extreme poverty in refugee camps (there are 402.240 internally displaced people and more than 460.000 refugees in the neighbouring countries). About half of the population, 2.5 out of 4.6 million, depend on humanitarian assistance; 1.5 million are in a situation of alimentary insecurity.

Between 8% and 10% of the population (400.000 people), benefit from projects managed by COOPI, which has extended its presence geographically with operations and activities in other seven prefectures of the country.

COOPI has been constantly present in the Central African Republic since 1974 and it is considered the oldest international humanitarian organisation active in the Country. COOPI priority sectors of intervention include food security, education and protection.
