IDPs Girls and Widows from Villages in the Northwest Received Cash and Kind Donations
GivHOPE in motion despite COVID19. IDPs young girls and widows from different villages in the Northwest today received cash and kind donations in Bamenda town. The girls received sanitary pads to protect themselves during their periods and the widows envelopes to carry out income generating activities. We put a bit of small smile on their faces through these symbolic gifts.
This brief but colorful ceremony that could not hold earlier in December 2019 as planned due to the civil unrest in this part of the nation. COVID-19 instructions by he Government could not also allow us to have more than fifty recipients in the hall. and that’s why we split the IDPs into small groups. More events like this will be taking place during May as well because we have more than 100 widows and 200 orphans in our portfolio in the Northwest and Southwest to care for. This event was covered by some local and national written press and audiovisual media. We heartfelt thank our Focal Points, LinkCorp and CRCDD that helped us organize this ceremony successfully. A handful thank you to Luvs & Care, our Special Giver.
As a matter of fact in November and December 2019, Luvs & Care offered 300 sanitary pads to the IDPs girls from the war zones living in Yaounde and Loum. The Bamenda handover ceremony crowned the series of hygiene pads to 50 young IDPs girls.
