Stand Up With AKWAMAN!
To make this world more equal and fair we need to stand up for what is right! Not only for your own rights, as well for others. Don’t be afraid to share your story with the world and to speak up!
We are standing for people that can’t stand for themselves, because they live in an unsafe zone where war, suppression & fear is controlling their daily life.
Southern Cameroon crisis
We speak up for Southern Cameroon (English Cameroon), while the world is silent about the crisis there.
Cameroon is seperated in a French side (80%) and an English side (20%) living in the Southern area. For many years now Southern Cameroon has been under attack and oppressed by the French Cameroonian government.
Government security forces abusing human rights in Southern Cameroon by beating, raping, arresting and killing civilians, burning their houses, properties, schools, hospitals and ransacking shops.
Around 40.000 refugees fled from Southern Cameroon to Nigeria and other West-African countries like Ghana. Next to the refugees, 450.000 people are displaced in English Cameroon and has fled into the bushes to look for a safer place to live.
As a result, many families have been broken. Children became orphans during this crisis and lost their parents during the escape or because of the genocide in their homeland.
To support the refugees and the displaced people, we give 10% of our proceeds to our partner the Ayah Foundation.
With the donations we will help the refugees with basic needs like shelter, water, food, blankets etc. With this the refugees have a chance to rebuild their lives.
If we stand up together, we stand strong!
