PHOTOS: Voices of the displaced in Bangui, Central African Republic (CAR)
A selection of photos by South African based photographer Luca Sola on the desperate situation faced by nearly 30 000 internally displaced people
Tuesday, February 2, 2016 —
With the final round of the Presidential election expected anytime this month, renewed inter-communal fighting since September 2015 in the Central African Republic is keeping the population on the edge.
Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is seriously concerned that fresh waves of violence could completely dash the hopes of the 450,000 people who have been internally displaced and those who have fled to neighbouring Chad, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
On MSF’s request, Luca visted CAR between December 2015 to January 2016 and documented in image and text the desperate conditions faced by 30,000 internally displaced people living in the capital Bangui. Personal testimonies have been included in the caption information.
