Hello beautiful people, I should have posted yesterday but one thing led to another and I missed posting. Well here is a collection of some news from Cameroon this Week:
Cameroonian asylum seekers in Ireland have called off their protests after some justice officials promised to look into their complaints this week. The asylum seekers, who include other Africans were requesting for citizenship, the right to work and allocated houses. You can read the full story here.
*Is it not a waste of life to intentionally leave your country and go and fight for ‘rights’ in another country?
The United Nations Children’s Fund in collaboration with some local health workers are currently battling a polio outbreak in the country. Some victims of the disease include refugee children from neighbouring Central African Republic residing in the eastern region of Cameroon.
*This is a call to all parents to get their children properly vaccinated. Most of these vaccines are free!
