The regions of Cameroon where CameroonONE & ONETrack International operate are in a state of emergency. Every day, families in these areas are facing unimaginable violence. This is a result of the Anglophone Crisis, a conflict between the English and French speaking populations in Cameroon.

Due to this crisis, we have seen an extreme increase in our program of orphaned newborn babies and young children diagnosed with severe sicknesses. As a result, we have begun an ambulance service initiative to transport these children and other community members to the Bamenda Regional Hospital where they can be treated and then transported back to their communities to be reunited with their families.

In troubling times, resources for these special projects are limited. If you or those in your community are looking for ways to ensure the safety of children affected by the Anglophone Crisis, continue to support our programs!

We are excited to announce our expansion into a 7th country...Cambodia

ONETrack International has partnered with Children in Families (CIF) to support children affected by the orphanage corruption in Cambodia.

Despite the progress made in recent years, Cambodia remains one of the world’s poorest countries. As a result, it is not difficult to find numerous opportunities to help impoverished children, especially those living in orphanages. However, nearly 80% of children in these facilities still have living parents. In the absence of strong state assistance for children and families living in poverty, orphanages emerged to provide these children with basic material needs and education that cannot be afforded at home. Yet, as the number of orphans in Cambodia decreased over the years, the number of orphanages increased. And as the number of tourists visiting Cambodia grows each year, some of these institutions have recognized a chance to profit off this pool of foreign donors and volunteers. For the children living in these facilities, their vulnerability becomes a selling point and their care is compromised.

The government in Cambodia has faced a variety of challenges as they attempt to improve childcare within their nation. The largest challenges being the limited time, budget, and resources of their social workers. As a result, they must count on the assistance of NGOs. ONETrack international is dedicated to identifying and supporting those NGOs that are clean from controversy and support our goal to reverse the trends that stimulated the current corruption of the Cambodian orphanage industry.

Recently, we started working with Children in Families (CIF), a local Cambodian NGO that is dedicated to providing high-quality family-based care for orphans and vulnerable children in Cambodia. Together, we share the belief that the best place for a child to grow up is as a member of a loving family.

ONETrack International is supporting specific cases within the Children in Families program that empower the biological parents or extended family members to provide long-term care for these children.

I want to take a moment to introduce you to Juliana Nicol Rodriguez Bush. She is 8 years old and in 3rd grade at the Jungle School. And, she looovvveeesss hot sauce! Due to our new program in Honduras, she is able to remain in a stable family home in her community of birth, La Ceiba.

While CameroonONE & ONETrack International are politically-neutral organizations that takes no position on U.S. policy, we do act as an alternative for citizens who are concerned about the children in Central America’s wellbeing after the exclusion from aid. If you or those in your community are looking for ways to ensure the safety of children like Juliana and prevent them from leaving their homes to take the dangerous journey through Mexico to the United States, continue to support our programs!

We are excited to announce our expansion into a 6TH country…Honduras!

ONETrack International is partnering with Helping Honduras Kids to support orphaned and at-risk children.

Helping Honduras Kid’s mission is to improve the life of orphaned, abandoned, abused and/or neglected children who otherwise would be in government institutions. They manage a children’s home called The Hogar de Amor or Home of Love located in La Ceiba, Honduras. Many of the children in their home have experienced traumatic physical or sexual abuse, neglect, or were simply abandoned prior to being welcomed into their care. Through encouragement, counseling and education, Helping Honduras Kids helps these children grow up to be happy, healthy, and productive adults.

How will ONETrack be involved?  Helping Honduras Kids supports three Campesino (peasant) villages in different areas around the North coast of Honduras. The children here are among the poorest in the region and desperately need support for their basic needs. Helping Honduras Kids and ONETrack International are working to ensure that these families can remain together, because without funding, the children of the most impoverished families are at-risk of becoming economic orphans.  

ONETrack will be working with specific cases within the program that fits our mandate of reunification and will continue to expand our role through future sponsorships with families practicing Transition to Home orphan-care.

What is the Yazidi Refugee Crisis in Greece?

The Yazidi people are one of Iraq’s oldest ethno-religious minorities. This ancient community has historically faced persecution.

The Yazidi have traditionally live in northern Iraq, with large communities in Sinjar and Shekhan. In August 2014, ISIS perpetrated a massacre in Sinjar, killing and kidnapping hundreds of Yazidis and razing their homes. 5,000 civilians were killed during the offensive, and another 7,000 women and children were captured. 

In June of 2017, the United Nations acknowledged the attack as a genocide in a report, stating that the genocide “is ongoing” and calling for action from the international community. While many countries have spoken out condemning the actions of ISIS, little is being done to aid those still suffering from the aftermath of the massacre.

In Greece, 2,500 Yazidis were stranded as of 2017, many have found temporary shelter in the northern region of Serres, where they await EU-sponsored relocation to other parts of Europe.

 

How is ONETrack International helping the Yazidi refugees?

ONETrack International is currently working in Greece on a mission to provide accommodation and resources for Yazidi refugees who have fled to Greece from Iraq as a result of the horrific violence and destruction wrought by the Islamic State.

Half of the refugees now in the Serres camp in Northern Greece are minors and ONETrack is looking for solutions to keep the community together in a sponsored guesthouse that will transition families from refugee camps to apartments. Our focus is reuniting unaccompanied minors with surviving family members and others among the displaced community.

We stand by our mission. Reuniting families. Giving hope.
