Escalation of violence in Buea, Cameroon

Everyday life is becoming increasingly difficult for the civilian population in Cameroon. The Corona pandemic is compounded by the ongoing violence in the current conflict in the Anglophone regions. The picture is from a food distribution campaign in the Emergency Relief and Reconstruction project.

The conflict in Cameroon is driving people to ever greater despair. Since fall 2016, a dispute between the Cameroonian central government and the Anglophone population in the west of the country has been escalating.

Hundreds of thousands of people have already been displaced by the violence. Since the outbreak of the conflict, Mission 21's work on the ground has focused on the most vulnerable people. (► More information to our work in Cameroon)

On October 14, violence in Buea, the capital of Cameroon's Anglophone (English-speaking) regions, reached a new sad climax: a little girl died when a policeman shot at a car. The policeman was subsequently lynched by people in the street. This can be found in the local media and reports of our partners, reports can also be found online.

This sad incident shows the extent to which violence in Cameroon shapes people's everyday lives and causes immeasurable suffering.

We are in constant contact with our partner organizations in Cameroon and continue our joint work even under the currently very difficult conditions.
