Emergency aid for displaced persons in the northwest region
According to information from the United Nations, in June 2022 there were around 580,000 people fleeing conflict within Cameroon. The repression of the central government, coupled with the rebel attacks, has seen an increasing number of people flee to the more remote regions. The northern part of Anglophone Cameroon, the North West Region, has been particularly badly affected, with around 280,000 people internally displaced. 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.
