Dr. Christopher Fomunyoh, Regional Director at the Washington based National Democratic Institute NDI, and President of The Fomunyoh Foundation (TFF) on Saturday, March 16, made donations to some churches and civil Society Organizations working with Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

This follows an ongoing unrest in the Anglophone regions, where over One million persons have been displaced.
The event that took place at the Foundation’s headquarters in Bamenda, North West Region, saw Dr Christopher thanking civil society organisations and churches for helping to curb the burden on internally displaced persons. He then donated items such as clothes, toiletries, sanitary pads and cash the 8 institutions, which they would intern,, transmit to IDPs.

Amongst the beneficiaries are the Youth Outreach Programme, (YOP), Community Initiative for Sustainable Development (COMINSUD), United Youths Organization (UYO), Centre for development, promotion, research and information technology exchange (CEDPRITE).

Four churches were also recipients; Presbyterian Church Nghomgham, the Gebuaer Baptist Church Atuakom, The RAMAH Christian Center and the Catholic Church Nghomgham, all in Bamenda. Dr. Chris Fomunyoh has promised more actions with other charity bodies in the days ahead.

Apart from the donations, Christopher Fomunyoh has been joining his voice to many other institutions, to call on Paul Biya to create a genuine dialogue platform, so as to put an end to sufferings caused by the war. Using his social media accounts , he condemns the high rate of human rights violations perpetrated in Cameroon.

Many had stipulated he would run for the 2018 elections, but Dr. Chris said he couldn’t “walk on corpses to be president”. He was paying allusion to the bloodshed ongoing in the North West and South West. Similar speculations were raised by the Cameroonian media, about Dr. Christopher’s candidature for the 2011 elections but he ended up not declaring his rejecting the intention.
