The UN have recorded that over 460,000 people have been displaced by recent violence in Cameroon’s Anglophone North-West and South-West regions and we are closely monitoring the situation. We have a humanitarian adviser based in Cameroon working with partners on humanitarian issues in the country and we are also funding a protection adviser in the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs working in the region on the Anglophone Crisis.
