What We DO


Programme design and implementation

The current and ongoing needs of refugees and IDPs from the Southern Cameroons conflict have overwhelmed the abil-ity of the few humanitarian relief organizations involved in providing assistance both in the Cameroons where there are an estimated 1.2m IDPs and in Nigeria where the bulk of the over 120,000 refugees reside. The fact that the Southern Cameroons conflict continues to be the most neglected conflict in the world has only served to exacerbate an already dire situation. VRF interventions will seek to sustainably address the most pressing needs of the most vulnerable populations affected by the conflict. VRF Programmes will primarily focus on education, agriculture and agro-allied industries


In April 2020, and for the second year running, the Norwegian Relief Council classified the conflict in Southern Cameroons as the most neglected conflict in the world. The implications for victims of this conflict are dire. As a consequence of this neglect, there are minimal efforts by the international community to address the root causes of the conflict and bring about sustainable peace. There is also minimal funding allocated by the in-ternational community to address the mass displacements of indigent popu-lations caused by the conflict which, by most accounts, has resulted in over 120,000 Refugees and 1.2m internally displaced.

Furthermore, an estimated 4.3 million people living within the conflict zone face food security challenges. VRF will carry out advocacy to ensure that the voices of victims are heard and their plight is brought to light. VRF advocacy will also seek to increase international pressure on armed state and non-state actors to respect human rights of civilian populations and internally displaced persons, and for host countries to respect the rights of refugees and to treat refugees with dignity and respect.
