A basic pharmacy

This clinic in Kaga Bandoro towards the north of Central African Republic was abandoned as the fighting intensified. Red Cross medics - backed by UK aid - come by the centre once a week to provide essential healthcare for the families who have had fled the fighting, from looking after pregnant mums to treating cases of malaria.


The basic pharmacy they set up each week provides medicines for those hit by the violence. It's the only place within a 2 hour drive that people can get medical help.


The UK is providing emergency healthcare, clean water, food and logistical support to hundreds of thousands of people across CAR in response to the severe escalation in the humanitarian crisis. For full details of how the UK is helping, please see:
