Over the past year, thousands across CAR have been killed and nearly a million have been displaced. The United Nations recently stated that the entire Western half of the country has now been cleansed of Muslims. CAR has never fully recovered from France's colonial rule, and it has only known ten years of a civilian government - from 1993 to 2003 - since achieving independence in 1960. Coup after coup, often with French military involvement, has led many to refer to the country as a phantom state. The current conflict has now completely erased the rule of law and order, and left the UN a...
Unabated violence between Christians and Muslims has plagued the Central African Republic since a coup by Seleka fighters to overthrow former president, Francois Bozize in March 2013. Thousands of Muslims have fled Bangui during the past several months to escape killing, looting and harassment by the anti-balaka Christian militia. The brutalities began to escalate when the country's first Muslim leader, Michel Djotodia, stepped down and went into exile last month. The French government has dispatched thousands of troops to the country, but they have appeared to be unable to prevent inter-communal clashes that erupted after Christian militias attacked the mostly Muslim Seleka group. Thousands are dead and nearly one million are displaced, in a country of only 4.5 million people. The United ...
For Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the situation in Central African Republic (CAR) was unique: seeing a country descend into violence before its very eyes, being surround by killings and witnessing an entire community being targeted without being able to provide protection. When the Seleka offensive began, MSF teams were already firmly established in the country. This documentary explores many of the questions raised by this situation: Did the teams know what was to come? What did they make of the increasing violence and the events taking place? What operational response was called for? Should MSF call for armed intervention? And what should the international community be doing? What assistance can MSF provide now?
Due to extreme violence, 1 million people in the Central African Republic have been uprooted from their homes. Across the capital city of Bangui, more than 60 camps have sprung up. The IRC is there, providing basic assistance such as food and shelter, as well as helping to protect women and children.

Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews Is the Central African Republic now a permanently fractured state, divided along religious lines? Some reports have described the situation in CAR as one in which genocide could easily break out. A BBC team has been there, against a backdrop of continuing violence between Christian and Muslim militias, to assess the situation on the ground, and how effectively the peacekeeping forces deployed there are holding apart the two rival armed groups. Outside the capital Bangui there's mostly no infrastructure – no covered roads, no running water, no sanitation, no electricity. We recorded our progress along the way.

Living with obstetric fistula causes extreme suffering. Incontinent and ostracised, these women have countless health issues. In January 2012, 50 women from villages across the northwest Central African Republic came to a Médecins Sans Frontières hospital in Boguila. 17-year old Awa was one of them. She developed a fistula two years ago during the birth of her first child. Awa (woman in local dialect) I came here because my bladder was torn, so the doctors could cure my injury. Médecins Sans Frontières sent a message to the chief of my village and he told me I could come here for treatment. Fistula can be avoided but it requires trained staff and care during delivery. Over two million women suffer from fistula worldwide, most of them in Africa. An Médecins Sans Frontières surgeon goes f...
Jean Marc Ndoubadegue is a refugee of the Central African Republic with five children. He fled with his family and nephews (the children of his murdered brothers) across the border to Chad. “When I was in CAR, I had everything necessary to eat. But once here, it is difficult to survive”, he says. He tries to find work with people in the host communities. To cook and eat, he looks for wild leaves. This video is part of the EU-Oxfam campaign, EUsaveLIVES, which aims to put a human face to the more than 55 million people in the world who were forced to leave their homes.

The Central African Republic is a diverse country, located in Central Africa. Despite its violent uprisings that define its history since independence from France, the country still retains a lot of potential for development, as it is rich in natural resources. The lands of the Central African Republic have been a cradle for human kind for thousands of years, so it’s definitely an interesting place.

UNESCO: Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity - 2008 URL: https://ich.unesco.org/en/RL/polyphonic-singing-of-the-aka-pygmies-of-central-africa-00082 Description: The Aka Pygmies living in the south-west region of the Central African Republic have developed a distinctive vocal musical tradition, which involves a complex type of contrapuntal polyphony based on four voices, mastered by all members of the Aka community. Music and dance form an integral part of Aka rituals including ceremonies related to the inauguration of new encampments, hunting and funerals. Unlike polyphonic systems that are written down in notation, the vocal tradition of the Aka Pygmies allows for spontaneous expression and improvisation. During performances, each singer can change his or h...

Over the last few months, the UN Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign has been working with PSI (Population Services International) and our UN partners to get a life-saving bed net to every family in the Central African Republic. Thanks to the hard work and contributions of our supporters and Champion Mandy Moore, we are currently delivering those nets to help protect families from malaria for years to come. In this video, Danwe N'Dikwe of PSI describes his personal experience with malaria, and how working together is the best way to beat this deadly disease. Send a net. Save a life! Together we can cover a continent. Learn more at NothingButNets.net.
Daily life in rural villages in West Africa, specifically in Mossi villages in Burkina Faso. I have included scenes of farming, harvesting, planting, cooking a meal, brewing beer, carving a mask, children playing with dolls and making their own masks, smelting and forging iron, spinning, weaving, a marriage, services in a Christian church and in a Muslim mosque, divination, sacrifices, a fashion show, musical entertainment in the big city, and more.
Here are a few short wildlife clips I have compiled over the last 5 years living in the Central African Republic, taken with my cheap point and shoot cameras. Most are shot in the Chinko River valley in the South-Eastern part of the country, where the conservation NGO, the Chinko Project is operating (the region I have worked since 2008). The elephant and lowland gorilla clips were shot in the Dzanga-Ndoki National Park in the South-Western part of the country. (My friend Ernie shot a couple of the clips). The cute baby Weigns Duiker was returned to its mother successfully and unharmed after the clip at the ending. The music is from, Milo Greene, and is called "Wooden Antlers". I do not own any rights to the music.
United Nations - The Central African Republic is a small country in the midst of an almost forgotten crisis. It’s a nation consumed by violence, hatred and instability. But human rights campaigners are striving to change the course of the country’s history. UN in Action, Episode #1488 Script (Pdf): http://www.un.org/webcast/pdfs/unia1488escript.pdf
