Ace cameroonian-born actress, Syndy Emade broke into tears after listening to the ordeal of some internally displaced persons, IDPs who are victims of the ongoing war in Cameroon’s North West and South West regions.
From different areas in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon, the internally displaced persons who are now residing in Mabanda neighborhood, Douala IV municipality took turns to explain to members of Syndy Emade Foundation why and how they got to Douala amidst the war.
To some, the intolerant,brutal and provocative attitude of the Cameroonian military and some restoration forces towards them reached an unbearable state that they had to run for their dear lives.
“When violence erupted in Mbalangi, my husband was killed while returning from the farm. As the main breadwinner of the family,I and my children had no choice than to seek safety elsewhere”. A woman explained during the get-together.
Other internally displaced persons do not know the whereabouts of their relatives at the moment after the war practically scattered family members in different directions.
Besides losing loved ones, some internally displaced people have lost all identification documents, certificates and other valuables that are hampering their quests to be employed in Douala.
To Syndy Emade “hearing their painful stories of how they became IDPs and how they lost their families and homes, I couldn’t hold back my tears.It is really sad that Cameroonians have been exposed to such a situation that has dehumanized people”.
Launching Syndy Emade Foundation on Thursday July 11, the foundation donated assorted food items to over two hundreds internally displaced persons from the restive Anglophone regions living in Mabanda-Bonaberi in Douala.
“…spending time and sharing with them was a roller coaster of emotions words cannot express” Syndy Emade told Mimi Mefo Info with a sense of satisfaction.
On the question of what the foundation can still put in place for the interest of IDPs, she says “we are planning a major back to school campaign and our wish and goal is to try to equip some children with their school needs and school fees to facilitate their return to school”.
With the campaign for effective school resumption in the north west and south west regions of Cameroon for the 2019/2020 school year after three years of no school, the well-known actress says “education is the key pointer in our lives, I can only dream to see every child educated.”
