Description : Rosalie and Boukanga have been living in the Mpoko camp since the December 5, 2013 when the violence started in Bangui. They used to live in the PK5 where their house was attacked. Since then, they have been too afraid to return to their neighborhood because of the presence of armed groups. Their family has been living in the Mpoko camp with the small money they earn while selling food and cultivating manioc in the camp itself.
The government, the Central African water distribution company (SODECA), the Central African Red Cross Society and the ICRC offer assistance to the internally displaced persons. The ICRC installed a water system with a capacity to hold 70,000 liters, distributed to 12 different tanks. Residents use this water for drinking, washing, cooking, among other domestic uses.
