Scandy media keeps reaching out to our refugees in Nigeria, thanks to the support from its followers, network and sympathizers:
https://youtu.be/PMBfM-8M3Ok Southern Cameroons has more than 100,000 Refugees in Nigeria, registered and not . The UN and other Organizations have been to some parts and states, yet the case of Taraba state remains still very wanting due to the distance and bad roads as well and the lack of volunteers to get to the borders and fish out some those dying in forests and bushes daily. Shey Tatah Sevidzem of Scandy Media Platform has been to some of these abandoned places with the support and assistance of his followers and network to create more awareness.
We went to one of the most dreaded places Nkiri 1& 2, inacessible with strong hired bikes thanks to support from Caroline M Ayuk, Nkeu Ndum Angafor Wo UK, we also had support from NFU-Bongbati of Denmark, Scandy media followers and fans : a message from Ambazonia front line leaders and IG : These are women in a valley hard to access known as Nkiri 1&2: The distribution took place after training on how the women can take care of themselves: About 95% of these women are from Lus,an outskirt of Nkambe in Donga Mantung County. We are grateful to all who contributed to this event : We intend visiting them again, getting kids to school and please do not hesitate to chip in something to reach out to those we could not: Shey Tatah from Scandy Media platform
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.
