Cameroon Flood Victims Receive Relief Materials

Villages affected by floods in Cameroon have benefitted from relief materials donated by the railway corporation

Fifteen families most affected by the recent floods in the villages of Foulou and Zouzoui in Mayo Kani division of the Far North Region of Cameroon have received relief materials from the country’s railway corporation.

“Our presence here in Foulou, should be understood as an indication of our support and also as our modest contribution beside the public authorities, to those affected by the floods in order to allow them to regain a certain balance and move forward,” said Pascal Miny, the Director-General of CAMRAIL while presenting the items which included foodstuff.

According to Pascal, the donation was a support to the affected persons and it consisted of sleeping materials and foodstuff.

Dr Sillon Franklin Danki, President of the Association of Development Committees of Midjivin, thanked the corporation for the humanitarian support to the people of Foulou.

“CAMRAIL has come to cry with the populations of Foulou and we acknowledge their compassion. I thus wish to seize this occasion to thank CAMRAIL for this,” he said.

The occasion was presided over by the Sub Divisional Officer for Kaele, Marcel Ngrem.
