Help Support the victims and families of mass shootings in Anglophone Cameroon

The war in Cameroon has resulted in the displacement of 1,00,1,279 persons. From 2016 to date thousands have been murdered, over 207 villages and whole communities burnt to ashes and 60,000 have fled as refugees to the borders of Nigeria. Agape Self Sufficiency ( ASSUF) was founded in 2018 in response to the anglophone crisis in Cameroon to relief poverty by supporting deprived refugees and internally displaced persons to gain financial independence, through skills training and business setups and

create a positive loving environment in which the abandoned and neglected children are supported.

2020/21 Orphanage project

Many parents have been killed during this crisis leaving many children as orphans without access to basic support. Some are on the streets eating from dustbins, others have become sex workers at very young ages to survive. We have secured a partnership with a convent in Cameroon to identify some of these desperate children for support.

We need to raise funds to pay for accommodation, education and health care. Please help.

Examples of letters received from Cameroonian Refugees requesting support below

Hi. My name is Siri. I ran away from Cameroon due to the crises we are facing back home. I abandoned my provision store and my home to get myself and my children to safety. Right now I am incapable of taking care of my 3 kids. I am pleading with you to help me start up a store again since that is what I am best at so that I can take care of my kids.

The market is really far from where I am staying. For example, I wanted to buy batteries to put in my tosh lamp since the light here is not constant, there were no batteries in any of the stores around. And it was nightfall and I could not go to the long-distance market, so I slept with the children in darkness. This is just one of the many things we can’t easily find around us.

And again ma, as I’m talking to you feeding the children now is my biggest problem. So that is my I really need to be doing something which can put food on our table regularly.


Permit me to relate to you some problems the refugees are having now. The children in our own camp who number about 150, like other S Cameroonian refugee children have not been in School since 2016. They feel that your efforts can make them go to school again. We volunteer to teach them informally, but our efforts do not end up with any certification. They will appreciate it greatly if you and your friends could support them with school bags, writing and study materials, and cost of uniforms and food. Your open hands will be richly blessed by God

May the good Lord replenish the purse from where the monies are coming from a thousandfold

Refugees appeal for support

We have already received more than 100 applications for funding, but we hope to start with the first 30 covering the areas of transportation, solar power mobile charge/internet and market trading and retraining assistance. The first phase of the project which is due to commence once we have the funds is estimated to cost around 10,000 pounds. Below are examples of some of the areas to be funded.

9 motorbikes for transportation which cost 400 pounds each = 3600 pounds

Training in tailoring costing 50 pounds

Hairdressing salon start-up costs for 10 applicants totalling 150 pounds each = 1500 pounds

Market trading which includes selling raw and cooked food, setting up callbox and charging of phones etc. costing an average 150 pounds each

It is our goal to raise 20,000 pounds to provide grants and training to these refugees.
