Provision of psyco-social and material support to those identified. HaRO administers a needs assessment form that enables the IDP department to come out with a comprehensive list of IDPs needs. This also takes into consideration the needs of the host families that for several months have suffered the weight of catering single handedly for those displaced. Once identified, these IDPs benefit from psychological counselling, follow-up visits during which HaRO team provides them with some material assistance in food and non-food items.
Education and sensitization programmes in schools, colleges and communities focusing on Children’s rights, Gender Based Violence, HIV/AIDS prevention and care. These activities take place in a number of communities especially those with a large population presence and a low standard of living (Slump quarters), primary and secondary schools especially in the outskirts of the towns (subdivisions), meeting groups and local associations of women and youth. The intention is to increase the level of awareness of the vulnerable persons and groups on these ills and how to combat them, where to seek support in case of exposure (voluntary or involuntary) to risky behavior and how to denounce perpetrators of violence.
Identification of persons internally displaced as a direct result of the crisis in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon. Our area of focus for the moment is the Centre region where many IDPs living in host families have not been identified.
