After 3 years of implementation, March 31, 2024 saw the end of our project Emergency response to the humanitarian needs of vulnerable, displaced and local populations affected by the crisis in the Far North of Cameroon, in local partnership with the Comité diocésain de développement-Caritas de Maroua-Mokolo (CDD-Caritas), with financial support from Global Affairs Canada (GAC).

By its conclusion, the 3-year project had directly reached around 300,000 people, at least 60% of whom were women and girls, making a significant impact on their lives by providing health, water, sanitation and hygiene, nutrition, livelihood and protection services.

Ganava, a woman who had to flee her village, tells how her life has changed thanks to the project:

“Since my arrival in the camp, we have benefited from several services offered by Mission Inclusion/CDD-Caritas. I took part in cash-for-work activities, which enabled me to rent a field and buy quality seeds.”

Aïssa, another participant, shares her positive experience:

“I received millet and groundnut seeds. The seeds were improved and of good quality, which had a positive impact on my harvest.”

These testimonials illustrate concretely how the project has transformed the lives of these resilient women and their families, giving them renewed hope and livelihoods despite the crisis.

The end of this project also marks the end of Mission inclusion’s collaboration with CDD-Caritas, which has continued since 2016 – funded without interruption since the beginning by AMC. Mission Inclusion and CDD-Caritas thank AMC for its trust and good collaboration over all these years, providing a critical and effective humanitarian response to people affected by the crisis, particularly women and girls.

Although this project is coming to an end, the crisis in the Far North of Cameroon unfortunately continues unabated. CDD-Caritas and Mission Inclusion will continue their efforts to serve the affected populations, especially the most vulnerable among them.
