Support Internally Displaced Persons in Cameroon

Summary

Four years into the Anglophone Crisis coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, hundreds have been recorded dead, over a thousand homes burned and over 900,000 people have fled their homes. This has led to a fragmented health care system, primary school education, suboptimal water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) Food insecurity and high rate of malnutrition. CAMAAY is working with several local communities affected by the crisis to ensure that Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are supported.

Challenge

Four years into the Anglophone Crisis coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, hundreds have been recorded dead, over a thousand homes burned and over 900,000 people have fled their homes. This has led to a fragmented health care system, primary school education, suboptimal water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) Food insecurity and high rate of malnutrition.

Solution

The objective of this project will be to support 100 IDPs in the region of Bafoussam to return to their original places of settlement. The projects will be aimed to improving access to inclusive and quality education for girls and boys (Education), improving access to potable drinking water, providing legal aide and assistance, supporting income generating activities, providing emergency food security and ensuring appropriate and affordable housing options (e.g.: emergency shelter).

Long-Term Impact

The project will support internally displaced persons yearly for targeted groups i.e. Women & Children, Youth. This will allow them to rise out of poverty, access to healthcare, education, self employment which will provide for their families' health and well-being.
