Central African Republic:
Additional violence has forced nearly 50,000 more people to be displaced since the beginning of the year. To date, nearly 900,000 people have had to flee from their homes. This crisis is enormous and much prayer is needed for provision and safety for all of these refugees.
Please continue to pray for peace for the people of this country. The U.S. Council on Foreign Affairs reports that some 10,000 people have died due to the violence that took place last year and 1.5 million people have been driven from their homes. The people have experienced unimaginable fear, suffering, and loss. Please pray for safety and peace to return to the people of this country.
The Ebola outbreak continues to take lives across this region. More than 23,000 cases have been reported, with more than half being in Sierra Leone. The World Health Organization reports that more than 9,000 people have died, with 4,000 (the highest) in Liberia and more than 2,000 in Guinea. Please continue to pray for the complete eradication of this terrible disease.
