Since 2013, Chad has been one of the main host countries for refugees fleeing conflict and its effects in Central African Republic (CAR). As of August 2020, around 95,000 CAR refugees are hosted in camps and villages across Salamat, Moyen-Chari, Mandoul and Logone Oriental regions in southern Chad?The refugees and their host populations face elevated needs across a number of different sectors including food, protection, health and WASH.  Over 131,000 people in southern Chad are food insecure (IPC Phases 3-5). COVID-19 has further hampered the delivery of humanitarian assistance to CAR refugees and host communities, already limited by a persistent lack of funding for response efforts and reduced humanitarian access to some areas, particularly during the rainy season (June-October).?
