REPORT ON MEETING ATTENDED

Title : International Humanitarian Relief efforts for Displaced Families in Cameroon, Africa. 

Date : September 29th, 2018

Venue : Conference Call

____________________________________________________________ _____

First of all, I would like to extend my gratitude to all JRCCA and JRFIUSA  members who made it a priority on attending the meeting addressing the Humanitarian Relief efforts for displaced families in Cameroon. The meeting paved the way to address possible strategies on fundraising to support the population needing basic resources and evacuation from areas plagued with civil unrest. It provided the opportunity to address the recent developments within JRFIUSA and its applicability within the JRCCA framework to foster a positive and continuous rapport towards a better future.

Described briefly below are some elements in the meeting

  • The Conference call was designed to: 1) discussed the ongoing unrest in the Southern

Cameroons and fundraising to support those currently fleeing their homes including JRCCA members. 2) Introduce the Charity Net 10 X 10 model where Members are to sponsor 10 new members who will commit to a monthly pledge of $10, $25, $50 or $100. 3) Promote our current fundraising campaign on  GlobalGiving via various social media platforms. 4) Promote the JRFIUSA Melaleuca fundraiser from which products could be donated to the displacement project and sent to Cameroon.

  • The slot of time was a one hour conference call on September, 29th. It included members from JRFIUSA and JRCCA.
  • The meeting featured discussions led by Mr Bernis Tibeme, Mr. Gideon Ticha and Dr.

Samuel Taylor, on deriving strategies to help the displaced families in the

NorthWest(NW) and SouthWest(SW) regions of Cameroon, Africa. Emphasis were placed on fundraising and marketing platforms to get information out to the public.

  • Information was obtained from JRCCA members based in Cameroon who affirmed their plight of the conditions they are currently facing, As per the President and other members, we were informed that they are in need of basic resources which they are currently lacking. Also, they proposed we seek evacuation means to safe havens due to the uncertainty of the status quo which is not getting any better. 
  • We agreed setting up a committee of 3 to 5 persons (Cameroon and the USA) that will research on Budget for the JRCCA Displaced Families Team obtaining Visas and attending the JRFIUSA Summit in Georgia USA in November. The committee will also research on monthly expenses, how much it will cost to support the JRCCA displaced families in the shelter from NW/ SW Cameroon, Africa. The Committee will be set to present their findings by the next meeting on October 13th, 2018.

Throughout the meeting, participants stressed the importance of keeping pace with events, Email social media list asking friends and families to donate via GlobalGiving (Our Project Information Project Name: Emergency Funds For Displaced Families In

  • Another important result from the meeting was the promotion of the Melaleuca fund raising. The Melaleuca organization will donate 7% of the volume raised by the JRFIUSA Team to the JRFIUSA Melaleuca Foundation Fund. JRFIUSA members are encouraged to sign up and each monthly purchase could be for personal use or donated to the displacement project. Interested members are to contact JRFIUSA Chairperson and President Gideon and Celine Ticha for details on how to sign up and join the JRFIUSA Melaleuca Fundraiser.  After signing up, members are required to have 10 members in their downline: an example of the Charity Net’s 10X10X10 Concept, that also guarantees at least a $1,000 personal income each month. The plan will guarantee financial and product support for the displaced family members while they are in shelters in Cameroon as well as provide funds for the growth and development of the Multi-purpose center that they will return to after the crisis.
