Updates Reports from the Field in Cameroon

By Gideon and Celine Ticha | Project Leaders

December 15, 2018   Report by Ma Comfort, Loveline, Will , Gideon, Pa John and Team

The purpose of this update report to our donors is to sadly with heart felt sorrow report that our families are still on the run in hiding without access to the necessities of life free from dealing with lack of proper sanitation, food and clean water.  About six months ago, we had to evacuate from our homes and way of life in Zang Tabi Taah, Meta Mbengwi North West Region in Cameroon, Africa and our family members, teenagers and children are suffering from the horrific effects of the military unrest in our 28 villages.  We are stuck in our small unit sleeping on the floor and waiting for the all clear alarm so that we can return to our homes and farming way of life. 

 

Killing, burning of houses and looting is still happening in the villages and on the roads in between which makes it unsafe to travel in the regions of NW/SW Cameroon.  It has been reported that more than 400 civilians and security forces have been killed in Cameroon's English-speaking regions since the beginning of the conflict in 2016. Crops destroyed, house, animals destroyed, farm destroyed, food crops destroyed and stolen.

 

Despite the danger of traveling in the region, several displaced families were able to celebrate Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays as a result of support from donors and our sister organization in the USA, the JRFIUSA.  We were uplifted and grateful for the support received through the global giving program and outreach. 

 

We are thankful that the Project has provided some emergency support for displaced families to obtain water, food, medical supplies , personal items, household needs , mosquito nets, insect repellent, and shelter for several  Families who had been hiding in the bushes and have escaped to a safe area from the crisis which has been ongoing in the NW/SW Regions of Cameroon. We have transported several men, women and children out of the country to a safe place until the civil war is over.

Challenge

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 200 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.

Solution

The displaced families are desperately in need of nutrition, medicine, shelter and health care for starving children and families who are on the run and have been displaced from their English-speaking homes in the NW/SW areas of Cameroon.

Long-Term Impact

 In the process of developing our children, rural families, and community leaders into self-sufficient members of society, we must adhere to the sanctity of life and instill in our children the Word of God and the reverence for life because we were made in the image of God. This crisis too shall pass!
