Stop violence against women and girls: Say No to widow inheritance (1/4)

City of Hope Women’s Centre Project, Presented by CAEPA Cameroon For the past three years, Cameroon has been engulfed in a brutal conflict known as the “Anglophone Crisis”. A peaceful strike, which was begun by teachers and lawyers, quickly turned into a revolt against the marginalisation of the English-speaking regions of the country. The government’s response included intimidation, arrests, jail, and torture, which has now become the norm. As a result, there has been a dramatic increase in gender-based violence against women that has had a devastating impact on individuals and communities. Based on a survey conducted by CAEPA, 100% of the 320 women had been victims of violence including beatings, coercion, early and forced marriage, forced harmful practices, public shaming and humiliation, intimate partner violence, murder, prostitution, rape, social isolation, severe verbal abuse, sexual harassment, spousal abuse and trafficking. The City of Hope Women’s Centre will be a safe place providing solace and shelter for Cameroonian women and girls who have experienced a multitude of traumas resulting from the conflict. Here at CAEPA, our vision is to create a facility, run by young feminist activists, offering support, healing and refuge for the women and girls who have suffered unimaginable abuse, providing community support and resources in a safe and nurturing environment. Survivors will have the opportunity to become empowered and financially independent through educational programmes (workshops and classes) and post-trauma treatment/mental health support provided by qualified specialists to help them get back on their feet.  To make this possible, we need your help urgently. Please help us free these women and girls from a never-ending brutal nightmare of human rights violations and a plague of injustices. No one deserves to face a life of constant abuse and fear of death. Your donations will contribute to the resource City of Hope Women’s Centre Project, Presented by CAEPA Cameroon Join CAEPA’s community of hope by bringing these women a City of Hope.
