Repost @aljazeera - Photo: Samuel Hauenstein Swan for AJE ••• Abou Zenebou, 18, her husband Sambo and son Zongabona, three, have been in Douya since fleeing their home in Jean Basse along with around 100 others in April. 'Men started shooting during the night. I was scared of dying - someone was killed right in front of me. We ran into the bush, then took four days to walk here. At home we have our own fields, but everything here costs money and we have none. I don't know if we can ever go back,' she says.
The emergency response team of NGO Action Against Hunger is on a mission in the Central African Republic's northern Ouham-Pendé province - near the border with Cameroon - to reach out to those who have fled from a sectarian conflict that has left nearly one million people displaced, according to the UN. More than half have left the country, while the rest are living in camps inside Central African Republic (CAR) or sheltering with relatives and host families.
Already chronically poor and unstable, CAR's largely forgotten conflict has worsened a dire situation, disrupting food production and basic services and leaving swaths of territory under the control of armed groups and warlords. Today the UN says 2.3 million people are in need of aid, and half the population are without enough food.
