Mr. Nifang Nde Frederick is one of the Southern Cameroons refugees and leader undergoing hardships and Challenges as surviving is a major call for concern: They have to go very hard manual work to have at least a meal in a day, sometimes roasted corn is the meal they can afford :
We need to assist and empower our refugees who of no fault of their own find themselves into this mess : Our refugees in Nigeria 🇳🇬 and other countries are experiencing the same hardship as one of former refugee coordinators Mr. Nde Nifang Frederick who has to go clear a large portion of farm to afford a meal and maybe by the end of the corn 🌽 is offered for refreshment :
We can assist these refugees to own their own farms and produce the food they consume and maybe sell some to buy drugs, pay rents and afford other basic needs: Nifang as an example underwent a serious surgery after a fatal accident that made him handicapped yet he still undergoes such hard labor to survive:
It is our wish that many will come to their aid and see how we can empower and assist them better their lives: Many of such cases and even worse abound in Taraba state and some states not yet accessible. Shey Tatah (SM)
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.
