HIV/AIDS Updates

Greeting To Our Sponsors and Supporters:

We would like to thank all of you for the continuous support that has been provided to our organization that will help us educate our people to end or reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS in our 28 Villages in the NW English speaking region in Cameroon, Africa.  We are still reporting that the NW region of Cameroon continue to be in civil crisis and is not safe for performing humanitarian work to the peoples at this time.

The sad news is that on March 10, 2021 the Elder, patriarch and Founder of our organization Pa John transistioned from Tyrone, Georgia to be with our Heavenly Father.  Although this was a sad occasion, the people from our 28 Villages had an opportunity to come out and say good-bye.  As arrangements were being made to transport his remains back to Kwojeoh Tuseh near TEHNAAM in Zang Tabi TAAH Meta Mbengwi Momo Division in the NW region of Cameroon for his last resting place, our JRCCA NGO continued to Educate our communities on HIV/AIDs, by defining the meaning of HIV/AIDs which is Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.

HIV is a virus and AIDs is when all the anti bodies are affected. After educating them, we adviced and refer them to near by clinics in our four zones to go for screening. We have informaion about the point of contact at the Mbengwi health unit provided by our Executive Director at " JRCCA American Corner in Mbengwi Momo Division NWR" in Cameroon. 

As of now, because of the crisis going on, we promise to meet with them in the nearest future to see their various status meanwhile, those that were already identified we encouraged them to continue with their treatment.

Here we will like to point out and say on the 19th of April 2021 when our founder Pa John's corps finally arrived in Cameroon at the NSIMALENE  airport in Yaounde, we collaborated with the Cameroon Government, Governor of Centre Region,in Yaounde who approved authorization to bring the remains through Yaounde Airport to the Mayor and the DO  in Mbengwi who authorized the remains to stay in the Mbengwi Mortuary for about a week and we're  teaching people on  hygiene and cleaniness which included HIV prevention. On 24 April we organized leadership meeting to plan for the celebration in Yaounde attendance from 5 zones ,more than 30 participants with representatives from United States of America;Prince, Linda and Giddy from the USA.  Our health department was also present at MECUDA Cultural House where our founder's corps was laid at state for about 3 hours for the, viewing, speakers upon speakers revelations about PA John's life and Celebration of his life the kickstarted for all the local community members in the Yaounde; Capital of Cameroon to pay their last respect to our patriach Pa John.

The President of JRCCA did  a powerful presentation, on our sustainable education, training and teaching on our programs activities to include food security, honey bee hives, women empowerment, livestock farming, hygyien,health and sanitation, Social distancing following DOs of Mbengwi's directions, about more than 100 persons and we continued to collaborate with the local government in Mbengwi where the DO and the Mayor of Mbengwi and council members also joined us by issuing a written authorization for the burial of the founder in his home town at Kwojeoh Zang-Tabi  following conditions you can see in the attachment where by we continued to give advise at the burial on absteinance, used of Condoms so that our people can live a happy life. 

At the burial, we share information from the DO proir to the event on 29 April and adviced all to followed the restrictions and prevention of the Cameroon Government issued by the Divisional Officer on social distancing, wearing of mask and limited number of persons at the Mbengwi mutuary and at the burial ground. There was safety and everything went on well at the burial compound .

An incident happened out of the compound where two women were fighting where one lady suspected the other to have had a deal with her husband and the President of JRCCA who is a member of our health committee was invited to come and resolve it. President went and counsel the two women on HIV /AIDs and prevention.  From the time that Pa John's remains entered into the country our health team was on stand by due to the fact there were large  crowds to eat, drink, greet and socialize for the return of a patriarch, native son of the soil.  We are looking forward to providing our health services to the many visitors who will visit the Pa John Legacy and Memorial site to honor his legacy and humanitarian work in the NW Region.  We are grateful and thankful for your continued support of this organization.

Sincere Appreciation

Continuous Progress Report For Displaced Families

Greeting;

Breaking News!!!

We regret to inform you that on March 10, 2021 in the state of Georgia, USA, at the age of 95 years old, our founder, leader, mentor and teacher for JRCCA/JRFIUSA-Inc, made his transistion from his earthly home to be with his family in his heavenly home.  In his behalf we hope that his work here on earth has been a blessings to all of those whom he came in contact with here on earth.  We want to acknowledge and give thanks for all of the comments and blessings that have been coming in to our attention. 

We hope that this report will meet you in good health and spirit as we make plans for his home coming celebration here in the state of Georgia as we prepare to travel to the place where his remains will rest in the village where he was born in Zang Tabi, Cameroon in the English speaking region in the NW area.  Please know that our hearts are heavy as evidence by the out pouring of greetings and comments from around the world.  Despite the many challenges that we are facing in this War torn environment in the NW Region of Cameroon, we know that both friends and foe will ban together to make his dream of returning to rest in the village where he was born will be realized.

Despite the challenges from the ongoing Civil War, we are facing lack of access to a good road that leads to his village, and  possible challenges to our safety.  Our family delegation from the USA is determined to honor his last wishes to be returned to Cameroon and be laid to rest at his natural birth place.  We will maintain his legacy of being our brother's keeper and teaching others how to fish rather than giving them the fish.

 Special comments here from Ma Comfort and Others!!!

"My dear loving father, I thank the almighty God for your life on earth. I thank you for your endless love, care, support, protection etc.. to me, the family and the World. Despite the fact that you are gone, your legacy will forever remain from generation to generations.

Papa you have always been a real model to me through your hardwork, words of wisdom,  your soft words, mentor to many youths who are today leaders in and around the World , your advices to us your children, above all kind hearted and a man of passion . One who demonstrated your faith in action , sharing, caring, compassionate, served other so as to make a positive difference in their lifes, selfless service, courageous, humbleman

Papa you have always been there to comfort and strengthen me when ever I am faced with challenges. You have always taught me to be kind to people and to share what I have with others. You never discriminate and have always shown equal love to us all. That is why in 2014, Ni Gideon with your support had to sponsor my education in Harvard Medical School to fulfill my dreams as a nurse and Midwifery. I remembered on my graduation day from Harvard, you gave me a Golden pen and told me that I should hold fast to education and that through education, I will prosper. Eevnthough you were not able to attend former education you were name "MASTER" by your peers for the many good things and royal duties you performed to serve our communities both in Meta Cameroon and USA

Papa you are so dear to me. 

Papa you have always showned us the way to fear God and I remembered your niece Ma Veronica  who preached to you the Gospel and you accepted and was baptised by immersion. By this, I strongly believe that you are now resting in the Bosom of our Creator with her. 

Papa you always corrected our mistakes with care according to the word of God in Proverbs 23:13-14 and also Proverbs 22:6. You have always adviced us your children that we should not envy and also throw spit to avoid our interest in some bodies thing. You have always adviced us to work hard to achieve our own and that hard work is key to success in life. Call onto the Lord  Jeremiah 33..

I strongly believe that by now you are resting in peace in the Bosom of our Father Abraham where I will also meet you when time comes to part no more.

Your Daughter Ma Comfort"

" Special Tribute To My Dad PA John A. T.

Dear Dad,

To me is still like a dream that you had left us so soon. I remembered four days ago when I was just back from work and you called for me to come and lets eat together Dad, and I didn’t know that was our last meal together. Dad, one thing I am sure is that you are now resting beside the Master of the universe where you are preparing a beautiful place for us. Dad, I want you to know that I can never forget that day; six years ago, when you called me and told me that hard-work, perseverance and doing good in this World to others, is key to success and you brought us to the United States of America, a place we now called Home to serve others and changes their lives for better. Dad, we say THANK YOU. Even if we slipped along the way, we are now together as you demanded. Dad, if there is anything, I would say to you is just that, I will continue to THANK YOU for the rest of my life for bringing us up so well and in the Fear of the Lord. If I faltered in any way, please forgive me. I know you cannot be blamed. You are so special to all children and neighbors. You call us your brothers and sisters.

Dad, I am going to miss you. I will forever appreciate you for making me a better person in this World and I promised to serve others like you did so they too can have a better life.

Dad, if there is any favor, I must ask from you now is, happiness and joy to the family, peace to the family.

Dad I crowned you Saint John Ticha, a man of wisdom, God is sent on earth.

Dad, until we meet again, I love you.

Sincerely Your Son Celitine"

 

"Oh Pa John , my best Friend.

I do remember how I always sit and we convers at Kwojeoh. I do remember how you shared your food with me.

"OMG, an Iroko tree has fallen. Mr. CEO and Family accept sincere condolences from the ESOE'S and the BACDU-USA Families. We pray that God grants your family the fortitude to deal with such a huge loss.

God bless us." Dan
"Sorrow fills my heart. Pa, I had been praying that you should come back home because I had so many historical issues to discuss with you but you have left me in the middle of the road.
Well, it is God's invitation. We have no objection to His will.
Rest is His bossom and may you answer my worries through dreams.
Family, take heart." Stephen
"OMG! What a great loss for our community and the world at large. Pa John made the world a better place. Soft spoken , kind hearted role model who inspired me as a kid. He respected the young and will always have some kind words for everyone that came across his path. Pa, we love you so much but God loved you more. May the Almighty grant you eternal rest at his bosom." Festus

Prior to receiving this shocking news our organization has been very active in the field helping members of the displaced families raise their faith and hopes for a better day by encouraging the people to come together and set SMART Goals and Action Steps to work together to develop food security programs including raising pigs, chickens and quails to feed their families and sell at the market.  In all five zones, families are working together to enhance their safety while developing their farms and independent small businesses..  After the Thanksgiving Holiday Feed The People, we brought joy and smiles on the faces of 36 children in an orphanage in ages ranging all the way from toddlers to teenagers with our surprise toy for tots project. 

We have set up five zones to better serve the local people at the lowest level in the villages in our approach to economic and financial development for the villages.  Each Zone has a director and a team of from 8 to 10 team members who come together to represent the zone.  We insist that there must be equal participation from both males and females in all decision making and goal setting to restore their lifestyle, economic development and educational system for children who have not been in school for over four years because of the Civil unrest.

We continue to monitor and encourage the women farmers in zone one who we donated 28 farm tools (hoes) to help them provide food for their families and to sell at the market to earn some cash.  We are beginning to see pictures of the pigs that werre donated to membeers of the food security project.  Pictures show that the pigs will soon be ready to cross and produce off springs that can be shared with other members for food and small business development.  Developing the Credit Union Project is still in progress and on track to open soon as each zone director is required to join a CU in his/her zone to learn how a CU operate to benefit its members which includes the benefit of submitting a proposal to start or expand a small business to become self -sufficient.

The Mayor and City Council in Mbengwi continues to collaborate and support our work in the area by providing us with office space to operate in the area.  In Appreciation for the support to our indigeneous people in the region, the community and local leaders have dedicated the Center in Mbengwi named "JRCCA AMERICAN CORNER IN MBENGWI NWR IN CAMEROON"! Popularly called (JACIM) . Currently our IT Manager for Cyber Cafe is researching and planning the development of a Cyber Cafe in each of the five zones.  Research and development is ongoing in working with each zone directors to select office space and  market the project in each zone.

We continue to network and expand our work in the Garden in California as we reach out to other African countries who have the same needs and concerns as we have in Cameroon.  Our first efforts to reach out to other countries in Africa included a zoom conference with representatives in DR Congo and the Ivory Coast.  We have applied for authorization with the Cameroon government to provide a walkie talkie network between our five zones to improve communication with zone directors.  We are supported in this venture with support from networking in the Garden in California, USA!
