Cameroon: something on its history
Cameroon is sometimes identified as West African and other times as Central African due to its strategic position at the crossroads between West and Central Africa. French and English are the official languages of Cameroon. Cameroon became a German colony in 1884 known as Kamerun. After World War I, the territory was divided between France and the United Kingdom as League of Nations mandates. In 1960, the
French-administered part of Cameroon became independent as the Republic of Cameroun.
The southern part of British Cameroons got its Independent and federated in 1961 to form the Federal Republic of Cameroon. The federation was abandoned in 1972. The country was renamed the United Republic of Cameroon in 1972 and the Republic of
Cameroon in 1984.
The Anglopohnone Crisis
What started as a general grievances by the lawyers and teachers in the two Anglophones Regions of the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon in 2016 then has become a civil crisis. Almost three years into the Anglophone Crisis, hundreds have been recorded dead, over a thousand homes burned , over 400,000 people have fled their homes.
These people are really suffering with little or no shelters, foods, medications, basics commodities, potable drinking water etc. As a result they are leaving in bushes and some have moved to other communities for safety. Some families do not even have shelter to return after the crises because their houses have been burned down. Life is so difficult with little or no income generating activities for parents and guardians to cater for their children and themselves.
Most community members suffer from illnesses due to poor hygienic conditions, lack of access to health care services and cannot access medical care on time. They are unable to check their medical conditions even with emergency medical needs with their limited income. Most of the families are leaving below poverty line. This result in some people losing their lives.
Inequality feeds inequality and civil crisis
When inequality is too high then a civil crisis is unavoidable. That’s what happened in Cameroon. The fact is that the civil war can bring a situation of chronic inequality: community members are suffering with children out of school, lack of shelter, no access to health care with limited or no foods and basic needs.
Solution: let’s improve life condition and fill basic needs
Inequality has to be faced. Support internally displaced families with foods and non foods Items for basic needs there by improving their standards of living thus reducing health related problems as a result of malnutrition and poor personal hygienic conditions. Provide mobile health awareness education and mobile medical relief to the community members.
