Action Against Hunger has been present in Cameroon since 2014.


More than 220,000 people in Cameroon face food insecurity. 


Country Overview

Cameroon is regularly affected by political unrest and fragility in neighbouring Central African Republic, Chad and Nigeria. In total, the country hosts over 400,000 refugees and violence in English-speaking areas has led to the internal displacement of more than 240,000 people. 

The water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and nutritional situation is also critical, and thousands depend on humanitarian aid.

What we are doing 

Action Against Hunger has been working in Cameroon since 2014. In the east of the country, we continued to work with Central African refugees and host communities on projects focusing on empowerment and strengthening livelihoods. 

In the Far North Region, our base continues to support all health centres in Tokombere and Goulfey districts to improve the health system and primary health care. We've also improved access to safe water and reduced waterborne diseases in the region.
