Gembu -Sardauna LGA Taraba state Nigeria 25-05-20 Let’s all wish our Ambazonian child Blessing a special birthday on her first anniversary : Blessing was abandoned by her mother who was operated upon just barely after 2 weeks at the refugee camp by her mother due to hardship:
Her mother escaped from the senseless war declared by Dictator Paul Biya of Cameroon 🇨🇲 against Southern Cameroons Ambazonia in November 30th 2017: She experienced serious hardship that she could not afford drinking water, talk less of food and other facilities to take care of herself and the child: She abandoned the child at the refugee camp in Gembu and another refugee woman Grace Asabe took care of her without knowing the mother had disappeared completely: Scandy media visited this child with some of his networks last January when Mr. Elvis Kometa reached out to the refugees: He was told about the painful incident and Mr. Kometa in his generosity immediately forwarded N20,000 despite the provisions already provided:
Monday 25-05-20, we celebrated her birthday and remain grateful to her adopted mother: We also thank anyone who has assisted them: All we can do is to give baby Blessing hope and reason to be alive to see the Ambazonian dream. We are also happy that her biological mother did not kill her despite the hardship : Let us all support and assist her and her Adopted mother while hoping that the biological mother shows up one day : A sachet of pure water, a plate of food, a piece of cloth, a tablet of medicine etc can go a long way to give Blessing joy until she returns to her land of origin Ambazonia when we are finally freed from Biya’s colonialism: Scandy media is ever ready to take your good gestures to them.

Gembu- Sardauna LGA Taraba State Nigeria : More than 250 South Cameroonian women refugees assisted in the North of Nigeria by Nso Family Union NFU- Bongbati Denmark
On 24-26 May 2019, NSO Family Union (NFU) Bongbati, diaspora organisation member of ADEPT based in Denmark, provided first hand reusable kits to 250+ refugee women from Southern Cameroons settled in Gembu -Sarduana LGA Taraba state in Nigeria. Implemented in partnership with the ‘Days of Girls’ Nigeria organisation and the ‘Scandy Media’ platform, the action aimed at both, providing refugee women with sanitary pads and reusable kits while training them on how to take care of themselves. Partners used this opportunity to train the Scandy media local team on providing humanitarian response, thus enabling them to extend the action and help more refugees in need in other communities and villages.
More than 100.000 refugees headed to the neighboring Nigeria in search of protection, shelter and security, trying to flee armed conflict and political crisis in Cameroun. Some of them lost their lives in this difficult journey because of hunger, lack of shelter and poor health. Women and children are the most affected by the situation and need special care. The Southern Cameroonian refugees are mainly settled in Taraba state, one of the most remote and insecure regions of the North Nigeria. It is also one of the less assisted and difficult to access locations where Southern Cameroonian refugees suffer from hunger, poor living conditions and lack of access to health services. NFU Bongbati will continue providing humanitarian response to refugee women and call all the diaspora development associations and humanitarian organisations to join the action.
