YAOUNDÉ, Cameroon, 28 June 2021 / PRN Africa / --

The UK provides humanitarian assistance to vulnerable groups affected by the conflicts in the North-West, South-West and Far North regions of Cameroon.

The British High Commissioner to Cameroon, H.E. Dr Christian Dennys-McClure has recently completed two official visits to three regions of Cameroon – the South-West, North-West and Far North. In all three regions he met with partners working to address the humanitarian crises impacting the Far North, North-West and South-West regions of Cameroon.

In the past 3 years, the UK has spent over 20m pounds to save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain human dignity in these crisis-affected regions through multilateral partners including UNICEF, WFP and ICRC. This has resulted in:

 

- the UK supporting 11,000 beneficiaries with unconditional cash assistance to people in the North-West and South-West to mitigate the socio-economic impact of COVID-19, including pregnant and lactating women, girls, persons with special needs and people with disabilities

- the UK supporting the construction of at least 6 primary health structures to the east of Bamenda, provision of preventive care including vaccinations, medical evacuation to surgical centres in Kumbo and Bamenda and subsidising hospital costs of patients hospitalised because of traumatic injury

- the UK supporting at least 36,000 people in Health, Water, Sanitation, Hygiene (WASH), and protection targeted at children and women through the Comprehensive Child Response

- an additional 59,000 people in the South-West, North-West and Far North, receiving assistance in livelihoods, food security, water, sanitation and health

 

The British High Commissioner to Cameroon, Dr Christian Dennys-McClure said:

"The UK is determined to be and to remain a force for good in Cameroon to save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain human dignity. We reiterate our support for humanitarian principles and call on all actors, state and non-state to enable humanitarian actors the access to carry out their activities safely."
