Refugees Welfare Association Cameroon
We are a Charity working for the welfare of refugees, asylum seekers and IDPs in Cameroon
What We Need
The Refugee Welfare Association (REWAC) is an indigenous, non profit organization registered under Cameroon law in the year 2009. It has as a mandate the protection, promotion and the enforcement of the rights of refugees, migrants, asylum seekers and IDPs as enshrined in International Law to which Cameroon is a Signatory.
According to the UN Refugee Agency, Cameroon hosts over 200,000 refugees and asylum seekers from 26 countries. The challenge in realizing their rights cannot be left in the hands of the Cameroon government alone or to the UN Refugee Agency.
Indigenous initiatives like REWAC are indispensable to complement efforts made by other international development partners and governments to address the challenges posed by these group of vulnerable persons.
We need to raise the necessary funds to sustain an efficient and effective level of operations for our activities. Therefore, our key goals are the development of a strong advocacy campaign as well as a marketing and fund raising strategy for the organization.
Furthermore,we also require a team of experienced volunteers to ope-rationalize the organization's plan of action for the next five years.
