"I am happy now. We are home and I feel safe", Vanessa Gbafio, 22, says. Together with her two small children, she was forced to flee in 2013. By this time, the Central African Republic was struck by violent conflicts. Many saw their homes being occupied by armed groups, looted and burned. People from Begoua found safety at displacement sites close by. So did Vanessa’s family: For several years, they had to stay at the outskirts of Bangui. Now, many of the families have returned home. We are helping them rebuild or rehabilitate their houses and provide them with a paper proving their property rights.
The project is supported by @UNHCR.
