On 21 and 22 March 2013, WFP distributed monthly rations to vulnerable displaced households from the rebel-controlled Bambari, Kabo, and Kaga Bandoro, at a community centre in Bangui. 26 mt of various commodities were distributed to 1,825 beneficiaries. At the time of the distribution, the rebels had already advanced to the outskirts of Bangui.
