Yet, another year begins and the Cameroon Humanitarian Relief Initiative (CHRI) is more than ever committed to helping refugees, the internally displaced, and others in distress or incarcerated due to the ongoing violence and conflict as a result of the Anglophone Crisis in Southern Cameroons. As the first month of this new year draws to an end, we are excited to share with you updates on 02 outreaches that we carried out ending 2021/early 2022. These are the 2021 Christmas outreach to Southern Cameroons detainees at the Kondengui Central Prison in Yaoundé and also, the 2022 New Year outreach to Southern Cameroons refugees in Cross River State, Nigeria .

On December 22, 2021 and January 5, 2022 respectively, we reached out to detainees at the Central Prison in Kondengui, Yaounde, and to refugees in Boki-Wula community, Cross River state, Nigeria, providing them with food items such as rice, garri, beans, oil, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, maggi, smoked fish, amongst others. These items greatly helped them survive during this festive period as the rest of the world was immersed in celebrations. All these could not have been possible without your continuous generosity and support. You can get a glimpse of the activities via pictures below .

On the same note, we will be sharing updates and pictures of our New Year outreach to malnourished children in the Adagon refugee settlement, Cross River state, Nigeria, in our subsequent emails.
