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. Donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/2j9h4?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_lin...

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.

Get Involved

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. https://www.gofundme.com/f/2j9h4?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_lin...

Good luck with your shelter. It sounds like a much-needed, and great idea!

You might want to include your gofundme link in the "get involved" section as I'm unable to access it. Also, you may want to search the "community" page where you can do a filtered search by country and interests to find others to collaborate with you. Do you know Tata? He's been quite prominent on World Pulse lately. Perhaps you could collaborate with him, for instance? https://www.worldpulse.com/community/users/tatawirba

This is the community page where you can do a filtered search: https://www.worldpulse.com/my-pulse/community

Let us know how it goes.
