#EndAnglophoneCrisis

Cameroon, officially the Republic of Cameroon, is a country in Central Africa. Cameroon is viewed as a French speaking country but 15% of the population speak English in the Northwest and Southwest

In 2016, crisis in the Northwest and Southwest began when lawyers and teachers took to the streets of Buea and Bamenda to protest the domination of French in Anglophone courts and schools. In November 21, a popular uprising dubbles “the coffin revolution” took place in Bamenda demanding political reforms. The situation escalated on October 1, 2017, when the separatists, led by Sisiku Julius Ajuk Tabe, symbolically proclaimed the independence of a new nation including the two Anglophone regions called Ambazonia. Cameroon’s Anglophone region remains in the grip of a seemingly never-ending crisis, even in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

On 24th October, 2020, seven children were killed and ten other children critically injured at Mother Francisca College in Kumba, Cameroon. Their offence? They went to school.

It’s very sad watching the current crisis happening in Cameroon.

What can we do to help:

•Create awareness: share videos, articles that contains useful information on the crisis happening in Cameroon,amplify and educate others.

•Donate in any way you can.

•Pray for Cameroon. Prayer can solve anything.

Let’s continue to spread the word #EndAnglophoneCrisis
