The ongoing conflict in Sudan has had a severe impact on the northern region of the Central African Republic (CAR), leading to the disruption of traffic between Sudan and CAR. This has caused a sharp increase in the prices of basic necessities, which has been felt in several towns in CAR, including Birao in the Vakaga Prefecture and Ndélé in the Bamingui-Bangoran Prefecture.

During the rainy season from April to October, access becomes more challenging, and supplies largely depend on Sudan. As a result, the price of some products has doubled, making it difficult for residents in the region to afford basic necessities. This has forced around 3,000 people to cross the border into Am-Dafock in CAR and live in spontaneous settlements. Other people are waiting at the border to enter CAR, hoping to find better living conditions.

In response to this crisis, humanitarian organizations are mobilizing to provide aid in the border region. Emergency shelter and food are among the most pressing needs, as thousands of people are struggling to find a safe place to live and enough food to eat. These organizations are working to provide relief to those affected by the conflict, but the situation remains challenging due to the ongoing conflict in Sudan.

The situation in the border region is a cause for concern, as the conflict in Sudan continues to impact the lives of people in neighboring countries. The CAR government and humanitarian organizations are working together to address the immediate needs of those affected by the conflict, but more needs to be done to ensure the safety and well-being of the people in the region.
