Since January 2018, growing violence between government and non-state armed groups has forced families of the North West and South-West Region (English Minority Speaking) Cameroon to leave their villages and towns.  Most have lost everything to indiscriminate fire. The conflict between the Cameroonian government and separatist forces is growing in intensity. Military raids and armed combat have made more than 300,000 people abandon their villages and towns since December 2017. They flee to the forest and urban centers. Very large groups of families (20-30 people) are staying together in tiny spaces, with limited or no access to water, food, and healthcare. Entire families have been divided, and great businessmen and women have turned into beggars. 

Gideon and Celine Ticha, who founded the JRFI USA non-profit, have lived in Tyrone, GA for several years.  Both are US Citizens and Gideon has over 20 years with the US Army.  Both Gideon and Celine have brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews currently on the run and living in Cameroon’s forest.  They have not had contact with some friends and family for moneys, and pray they are still alive. Through collective efforts, a group made up of mainly women and children were rescued about a month ago and currently are living in a safe house, which is basically a 1 room apartment, and JRFI USA is trying to pay for their expenses. Unfortunately, these people are no longer safe due to the violent outburst after last Sunday’s Presidential election.   They need your support!  All proceeds from today will go directly to those in Africa who are in desperate need of food, shelter, medical attention, and so much more.                                           

Please donate today!  


We accept cash, debit and credit cards.  All proceeds will go directly to Emergency Funds for Displaced Families in Cameroon, which is part of the JRFI-USA nonprofit organization based out of Tyrone, GA, USA.


To show our appreciation for your kindness, you may choose a gift from the selection of items grouped together based on the amount given.
