Our priority is to support international efforts to protect CAR’s population from ongoing violence. Addressing religious tensions is part of this.
The UK welcomes the work done by the Inter-Religious Platform and non-governmental organisations to defuse the tensions and promote social cohesion at community level. We will continue to work with the EU and UN to support this work.
The UK remains one of the largest humanitarian donors to CAR, providing £51 million through Non Governmental Organisations and international organisations to assist CAR populations and CAR refugees since 2013.
