The Cameroon Diaspora fights Covid-19!
Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cameroonian Diaspora, mobilized under the banner of I Am Cameroon, launched the Cameroon Diaspora COVID-19 Response, with a mission to protect the healthcare workers of Cameroon who are at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19.
This movement aims at mobilizing the Cameroon Diaspora to raise funds to procure personal protective equipment and distribute to healthcare workers in Cameroon. The activities of this Cameroon Diaspora COVID-19 Response are directed by a Supervisory Committee made of individuals of diverse backgrounds who stepped up to accept responsibility as the Coronavirus spread into Cameroon.
While the Cameroon Diaspora COVID-19 Response was an initiative piloted by I Am Cameroon, it has since its inception become a collaborative effort of the Cameroon Diaspora, hence the name Cameroon Diaspora COVID-19 Response.
Over the last three months the initiative has brought together several associations and individuals who are committed to the mission: to protect healthcare workers in the fight against COVID-19.
