On February 1, IOM helped 314 Chadians leave the Central African Republic (CAR) and return home safely to Chad. Since January 11, 2014, the Organization has helped a total of 4,792 third country nationals (TCNs) to return to their home countries. These include nationals from Chad, Cameroon, Mali, Sudan, Niger and Senegal. IOM has appealed for USD 17.5 million for CAR, but has only received USD 2.8 million.  The Organization still urgently needs contributions to be able to evacuate TCNs in dire need of protection.
