Why we are there

DRC has been present in Cameroon since 2017, implementing humanitarian response programming with Central African refugees and Cameroonian host communities in the Adamawa and East Regions, and with internally displaced Cameroonians and host families in the Southwest Region. 

What we do

DRC’s interventions focus on provision of emergency food, shelter and essential non-food items; protection services (including psychosocial support and rights counselling); community development; and income generation activities.
