Summary

Susan is an elderly woman who had her house burnt down by state-armed forces 5 months ago, during a raid. She stayed in the forest for a while, but when she confirmed her house was burnt down she decided to go somewhere else with her three children and two grandchildren. They all depend on her son now. "I want to plant a farm here. All of us are here to work and hustle. I want to set up a life so I can help take care of my children and grandchildren."

Challenge

After running away and leaving behind her life in Lobe, Ekondo-Titi, Susan finds herself in Tole, a community at the outskirts of Buea. "We are always hungry. We do not know what we have left back home, all that we know is that our house burnt and It does not seem like we will go back anytime soon. We want to go back so bad, but it is too dangerous, there needs to be peace and calm to go back."

Solution

Susan wishes she could go back to her village, we wish she could too, but the Anglophone conflict has only been escalating into more and more violence in the last 6 months and it does not seem to be going away. This project will provide her family with subsistence aid for 6 months to ensure they have appropriate shelter, access to health and food. You will also provide them with a set of business grants to help Susan and her children to set up businesses and begin their new lives in Buea.

Long-Term Impact

Susan is taking care of 2 grandchildren, who are under threat of malnourishment and health hazards, she herself fell sick of malaria during the long trip to Tole, and could not afford medical attention. We all know Susan and her family don't deserve to go through any of this. You can give them a break.
