Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)
(Note: United Nations offices currently speak of the territory of Ambazonia as the “South-West and North-West Regions” of Cameroon. This appellation, however, is changing as the world become more educated on the history of Ambazonia, the illegality of the occupation of the territory by Cameroon, and because the Ambazonian people have rejected Cameroonian identity and are asserting intensively their identity as the People of the Ambazonia state)
The humanitarian crisis in Ambazonia is continuously deteriorating.
In May 2019, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) reported that the ongoing Cameroon-Ambazonia conflict has affected 4million people and over 530,000 Ambazonians are currently displaced by the liberation struggle for the independence and sovereignty of Ambazonia. Most of those affected are women, children and the elderly.
Internally Displaced persons are in continuous need of shelter, food, clean water, clothes, and medical care.
The Cameroon military has burnt down over 250 towns and villages in Ambazonia in its policy of scorched earth.
The killing of more than 3000 civilians across the territory, the torture of those abducted by the Cameroon soldiers, and the destruction of houses has forced about 65,000 Ambazonians to flee from their neighborhoods, villages, towns and cities into Nigeria and Ghana.
35,000 refugees have registered with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) as of June 30, 2019 in Nigeria. Some Ambazonians have also fled the war to Europe, Canada and the USA where they have sought or are seeking refugee status protection.
The number of Ambazonians fleeing the conflict is increasing daily as the government of Cameroun continuous its atrocious actions in Ambazonia.
