ENDPOVERTY

WHAT EVENT OR PROJECT OR PROGRAMME OR CAMPAIGN THAT NEEDS SUPPORT 

We always have initiatives that need funding and/or other forms of support. 

We are currently appealing to you to halve poverty for the children victims of wars in the Central African Republic (CAR)

CAR Humanitarian Appeal

This appeal aims at helping to reduce poverty and hardships for the children victims of wars and armed conflicts in CAR. 

What the numbers speak about the children of CAR

According to UNICEF (1),

“1.5 million Children (now) require humanitarian assistance …

43,000 under five years of age are not at risk of severe acute malnutrition”

Likewise, Humanium (2) argues that

“171 children out of every thousand die, each year

38% of children suffer from chronic malnutrition while another

10% suffer from acute malnutrition”

Similarly, CENFACS is arguing that in a country of a population of 4.9 million (2017) if 1.5 million children of this country require humanitarian assistance; this raises a lot of questions about the survival and future of that population, let alone this country.  These numbers do not only speak about these children but also they speak for the need to fund their deserving cause.

What words are telling us about the children of CAR

The media are saying the following

“Children in CAR are constantly facing violence, fear, they are recruited into armed groups, they are living under unimaginable poverty and facing malnutrition” (3)

“CAR is the worst place in the world to be a child” (4)

 

CENFACS is arguing the following

The above expressions from the media are just some of the few from those who have been on the grounds telling the stories about the children victims of wars in CAR.  Their say tell us that something needs to be done to compliment the efforts of the organisations already working there.  In particular, most of those who have been there point out the underfunding nature of the crisis in CAR.

Because of what is happening with children in CAR and the continuing underfunding feature of the CAR situation (particularly the conditions of children there), CENFACS would like to appeal you to donate £5 or more to help the children victims of wars in CAR.  £5 may not be a big amount but every amount counts to help reduce the underfunding situation and halve poverty for the children of CAR, who are in the most pressing need at the moment.

Our African project partners initiate projects and CENFACS help them to plan, execute, control and close the project in the most successful way. CENFACS also helps them to develop a viable, accountable way to helping them to help themselves in building their capacity, particularly in the ever changing development landscape as it deems the case now with the 2030 Agenda and Global Goals for Sustainable Development, the new International Climate Change Agreement and the African Union Agenda 2063.
