11387284185_e177f16e38_zEuropska komisija transportira po treći put hitno potrebnu humanitarnu pomoć izravno u sukobljenu Srednjoafričku Republiku (CAR). Humanitarna situacija u državi i dalje je dramatična.

“The humanitarian needs are enormous with the entire population affected by the ongoing crisis. More than 232,000 people are uprooted from their homes in Bangui alone and more than 650,000 people are displaced throughout the country. Their lives depend on our assistance and we must deliver it now,” said International Co-operation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva.

Danas (17 ožujak), transportni zrakoplov uzletjet će iz Oostendea u Belgiji za glavni grad CARGU Bangui, noseći oko 100 tona pomagala, uključujući lijekove, terapijsko hranjenje, vodu, sanitarne uređaje, telekomunikacijsku opremu i dva vozila za podršku operacijama pomoći.

Ten humanitarian non-governmental organisations –Médecins du Monde (MDM), the Spanish, Dutch and French sections of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Action contre la Faim, the French Red Cross, Save the Children, Merlin, the Norwegian Refugee Council, Première Urgence – Aide Médicale Internationale and the International Rescue Committee (IRC) – are involved in the airlift.

In December 2013, when the humanitarian crisis in CAR took a big turn for the worse, the European Commission organized a daily air bridge for relief workers and relief goods between Cameroon and Bangui, using planes from the EU’s humanitarian air service, ECHO Flight. The Commission also organized cargo flights with relief goods (notably medicines and emergency shelter materials) to CAR, from Europe and from Kenya, in December and January 2014.

The Central African Republic ranks among the world’s poorest countries and has been embroiled in a decade-long armed conflict. The surge of violence in December 2013 exacerbated this situation and today more than half of the 4.6-million-strong population is in need of immediate aid.

Oglas

Today’s airlift operation is part of the reinforced engagement of the European Commission to address the increasingly acute humanitarian situation in the country. The European Commission has been supporting life-saving activities in CAR with €45 million alone since the escalation of violence started in December 2013. For the last five years, the European Commission has been one of the country’s main donors.

Europska komisija pruža podršku u nekoliko sektora, uključujući zaštitu, pristup zdravstvenoj skrbi, hrani i prehrani, distribuciji pitke vode, sanitarnim uslugama, logistici i humanitarnoj koordinaciji, kao i prehranu za potrebe onih koji su izravno pogođeni borbama. Komisija također pruža pomoć sve većem broju izbjeglica iz CAR-a u susjednim zemljama.

Tim europskih humanitarnih stručnjaka tamo prati situaciju i usko surađuje s partnerskim organizacijama kako bi osigurao da pomoć dosegne one kojima je najpotrebnija.
