It breaks my heart to see the sufferings of the internally displaced persons in former British Cameroons. Most painful is the sufferings of mothers in this families. I'm talking out of first hand experience. My parents were forced to leave our village of Ngie to the city of Bamenda. They now live in one apartment, my father, mother, niece, nephew and my aunty Esther and her two kids. In all, they are 7 of them in the house. My father is grieved that he is an internally displaced person and so does little to assist the family. He supports with feeding just when he feels like. But my mum carries the burden of running the house on a daily base all the times. She buys food, pays water and light bills and takes care of health bills as well. The little I put in to assist her is appreciated but deep down, I feel her agony. After visiting so many homes, I see women struggling to sustain their families during this time. I see the enormous pains these women go through to make life better for their families. They hawk anything they can lay hands on. My mum moulded bricks at a construction site. Its heartbreaking what these women go through to sustain themselves and their families while the men fold their hands and do nothing about it. I sincerely wish that all women who read this can make their voices heard by calling on the African Union and the United nations to see into the on going crises of Cameroon and bring a lasting solution to the problems. These internally displaced women should be empowered so that they can cope with life in the cities. These women are farmers or petite traders back in the villages where they came from. They got almost all their foods and vegetables from their farms. But now, they are in cities where everything is being bought. While praying that the Authorities concern bring a lasting solution so that things can go back to normal, these women should be empowered to sustain themselves and their families for the time being. And all these pressure these women go through might affect their health in the future.
