Families Are Still On The Run From NW Region!

Greetings To All Our Supporters,
Thank you for being there for our organization throughout 2018 and 2019.  As you know, our displaced families have been on the run since about August 2018 and we have not been able to return to the war torn areas of our 28 villages to provide services for them due to the on-going military conflict in which many people have either escaped the area or have been killed. 
While on the run for such a long period of time Our staff has continued meeting and providing on-going counseling and training in the field in our new environment due to the fact that our greatest challenge HIV/AIDS is the main deathly sexually transmitted infection in our society today and has affected many villagers in the NW Region of Cameroon.
Some of our staff have been invited to attend a health, education and business development summit in Tyrone, GA from May 9 to June 9, 2019.  This experience will enable them to acquire skills that should help them rebuild their lives and the people in the villages after they return to Cameroon and after they return to their villages free of war conflict. 
Studies shows that the age group highly affected with HIV/AIDS is the economically active population. As we stated in prior reports that some villages in the NW Region suffer from prevalence rates above 10% due to social acceptance, and high incidence of polygamy, early marriages and early pregnancies, lack of knowledge and contraceptives have caused a high rise in the NW Region.Solution

This project has organized a mobile health team who is trained to provide education, awareness, medicine, health care and preventative measures to the population impacted with HIV/AIDS in our 28 villages.   When things return to normal in the NW Region the remodeled  hospital and the JRCCA Urgent Care Centers in the Four Zones will be able to provide these services on a continueal basis and reduce the stigma associated with the disease while working with women and girls to prevent mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS.

Long-Term Impact

The government of Cameroon has in its Global objectives to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030. The age group which is currently affected with HIV/AIDS is the economically active population which will be able to actively participate in the economical development of the 28 villages.

Our project will enable everyone in the villages to become aware of their status and seek good health care and treatment at the hospital or JRCCA's Urgent Care Centers which will reduce the stigma associated with the disease.

Updates From Women Empowerment Team

The military interventions continue to disrupt the daily lives of the people in our villages in the NW Region in Cameroon. Despite the fact that the Women Empowerment Team has not been able to return to our homes in Zang Tabi Village and the Meta area in the NW Region in Cameroon, the team has continued to create opportunities for our group while we are on the run. 

For example, we have conducted educational workshop about the goals and objectives of our organization JRCCA to encourage locals to join us in creating and negotiating to develop economic opportunities here in Cameroon with investors and partners in the USA, especially in Tyrone, GA.  Our goals and objectives are to be prepared to rebuild our homes, hospitals, urgent care centers, provide clean water and promote and create jobs that will improve the economic development for the area and our neighbors in more than 28 villages when the military interventions are over and we are allowed to return to our villages.

We have organized a group of ten delegates who are scheduled to travel,  meet with and attend the annual Light of Cameroon, Legacy Proclamation in honor of our founders and leaders Ma Salome and Pa John, and the Leadership Economic Summit in Tyrone, GA. USA from May 11 through June 9, 2019.  The delegation will be led by the honorable Lord Mayor Beatrice of Mbengwi Meta City Counsel in collaboration with our honorable President Ma Comfort. The stated objective is to properly honor the Legacy and humanitarian work of Ma Salome over several decades in the NW Region of Cameroon, meet investors and tour businesses of interest that will help us to develop an economic foundation in the NW Region of Meta

The attached MOU explains the relationship established in the JRCCA Memorandum of Understanding with Mayor of the City Council of Mbengwi with regards to all activities including the main project of constructing the JRCCA American Corner in Tonekoh Zang Tabi Taah Meta to serve more than 28 villages for youths and creating jobs and employment to help deal with the growth and development of our youths.

Displaced Families Are Still On The Run

These displaced families remain at risk and are currently experiencing starvation, diseases and political persecution, as they are not guaranteed basic rights in their own country.

This project continues to affect more than 200000 families, children, women, men, youths from more than 28 villages in Meta and neighboring English-speaking people who are still hiding in the bushes and who have escaped to other areas in Cameroon including seeking refugee status in neighboring Nigeria and other countries of the world, who have fled their country in fear of their lives; and more than 500,000 internally displaced persons of "Ambazonia" fleeing the genocide by French Cameroon which in 2017 embarked on "scorched earth" policy, wherein hundreds of thousands of "Ambazonia" villages have been razed to the ground by French Cameroon soldiers, after looting and burning of property.

To say the least, these conditions are unbearable and not conducive to any kind of economy activity in "Ambazonia".  There are no functional schools, courts, or administrative offices in" Ambazonia" as we share this update report.

As you may already know in 2016 the common law lawyers of the Republic of Cameroon, who are residents of Former British Southern Cameroon aka Ambazonia, embarked on a general and indefinite strike to protest marginalization and rampart discrimination against English speaking residence of the NW and SW Republic of Cameroon in all walks of life, in particular, education, law and administration, just to mention a few areas of concern by the people.

This drastic action was due to the fact that the lawyers were snubbed, brutalized and tortured on the streets, after submitting a manifesto to the government of Cameroon requesting a return to the 1972 constitution of the country, to enable them to practice common law, and establish "rule of law" in the country, which is their inalienable rights based on their heritage as a former colony of Great Britian, who voted in 1961 to achieve independence by joining French Cameroon or the Republic of Cameroon which coincidentally is the name of the two states now.
