Emergency aid for displaced persons in the dioceses of Mamfe, Kumbo and Bamenda
According to information from UN OCHA, in June 2022 there were around 580,000 people fleeing conflict within Cameroon. Repression by the central government, together with rebel attacks, have forced an increasing number of people to flee to remote areas.
The northern part of the anglophone region, also known as the North West Region, has been severely affected, with approximately 280,000 people fleeing their homes. The region is largely inaccessible due to the conflicts, infrastructure has been heavily neglected by the government and the people are reliant on food aid as a result.
The project is supporting a total of 15,000 people in Anglophone Cameroon and is aiming to improve the food and income situation of those affected by the violent conflicts. In addition to the distribution of food, help will also be provided in the form of seeds for growing vegetables and training activities for young people.
The Redel Foundation is supporting this project with €89,000.
