More than 560,000 people have been forced out of their homes. Since the beginning of the conflict, approximately 370,000 people have fled to the neighbouring countries.
 
"The situation in the Central African Republic is extremely alarming. Both the misplaced people within the country and the refugees in the neighbouring countries are seriously under-nourished, and there are no possibilities for food production," said Minister for International Development, Pekka Haavisto.
 
The Finnish donation will be provided through the World Food Programme (WFP). The aid is also targeted for assisting the refugees in the neighbouring countries of Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Congo, and Cameroon, said the release issued on Tuesday.
 
The aid will be paid from Finland's appropriations for humanitarian assistance, included in development co-operation funding.
