Humanitarian Programme

Internally Displaced people and Refugees project

For over 5 years, there has been increased intensity of the crises in the NW and SW Regions of Cameroon resulting to the displacement of over 700,000 civilians to neighbouring countries, urban towns, French-speaking regions and the bushes (forests).

          Considering the uncertainty of a speedy solution, ERuDeF through CAWI has initiated the humanitarian programme to assist the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Anglophone Regions of Cameroon and IDPs in the French-speaking parts of Cameroon especially West and Littoral Regions.

In terms of the Humanitarian program scope and components, CAWI shall operate two functional identification centres;


  1. The Buea Metropolitan Centre (for SW and Littoral)
  2. The Dschang Centre (for Lebialem, West and NW)

The Humanitarian program components include; the IDP component managed by CAWI, the Biodiversity in crises component managed by the department of conservation in ERuDeF and, the Child-soldier component managed by CAWI.

The IDP component shall seek to assist IDPs in the domains of; protection/gender-based violence/psychosocial counseling, shelter and non-food items, nutrition/health, food security, food distribution, WASH, Education and, Early/Economic Recovery.

Child Soldier project

The child-soldier component seeks to achieve the following;

  • Identification of child-soldiers
  • Training needs assessment
  • Encourage disarmament by youths
  • Reinstate such youths into the functional economy through activities in the domain of education and vocational training, agriculture, business, etc.
  • Support to child-soldiers and monitor impact assessment on them

Biodiversity in Crisis

Due to the current crisis in Cameroon, the population is forced to run into protected forest areas for safety causing destruction of biodiversity and protected habitat.
