Hundreds of needy Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Southern Cameroons are now heaving a sigh of relief after a reach out to them by the Makongo Family Charity (MAFAC), since May 21, 2018. The beneficiaries, who are among IDPs registered as a result of the ongoing war declared by Colonial President Paul Biya, on the people of Ambazonia, received food items and cash worth more than a thousand US dollars.The IDPs are made up of aged persons, women and children. They are indigenes of Ekona, Muea, Muyuka and other surrounding communitie
Items distributed to the IDPs include; seventy-five bunches of plantains, seventy-five liters of palm oil, cartons of vegetable oil, Maggi and some cash. Over 30 needy IDP families in Fako, Southern Zone of Ambazonia, benefitted from the relief materials and cash.
It is important to state that all the plantains donated to the IDPs, were harvested from a two-hectare plantation of MAFAC, cultivated by the Bonavada University Graduates (BUGA) Association. BaretaNews is told that it was their first ever harvest since the plantation started.
Bonavada is a community in Buea, Fako County of Ambazonia. According to MAFAC, the plantation was opened to employ and keep busy idling university graduates in the community.
The beneficiaries in the different internally displaced communities that were visited by the BOVA youths, who also volunteer with United Support for Peace, expressed appreciation to MAFAC and its founder, Dr. David Makongo and called on other Southern Cameroonians to emulate such an example.
The MAFAC team also intends to extend its work to the entire Southern Cameroons and especially reach out to many other needy IDPs and other needy persons.
