The second project carried out by the engineers was the restructuring of the 5th district of Bangui, placing the access routes, the roof and the fence of the health care facility that serves one of the most populous city. The project was conducted in collaboration with the quotas of France and Finland of the European mission in Central Africa.
These activities are carried out with the aim to restore normality and legality in increasingly large areas of the capital, returning citizens streets and neighborhoods that the conflict between the Christian militias extraction and those filoislamiche had stolen them.
In the Central African Republic the conflict in 2013 resulting from a severe political crisis that led to the civil war has caused thousands of deaths and a total of one million displaced people, a quarter of the population.
