By Bakah Derick 

The Christian International development organisation Christian Blind Mission CBM Cameroon and the Central African Republic has announced the funding of two emergency projects in the North West Region to attend to needs generated by the current armed conflict and the COVID-19 pandemic for the next two years. 

The announcement was made on Saturday June 26, 2021 by the Country Director CBM International Country office in Cameroon Julius Niba Fon during the launching of the two projects being the Disability inclusive humanitarian Action (DIHA) and the Inclusive Eye Health (IEH) in the Context of COVID-19. 

"It is our aspiration that our environment evolves to be enabling: for the disability movement to grow and become veritable voice for inclusion and agents of disability inclusive development, for the design and implementation of long term comprehensive and inclusive eye health programmes through an eye health district approach and for decentralised local governance to enhance community based inclusive development." Julius Niba Fon said. 

The leader of the Coordinating Unit of Association of Persons with disabilities (CUAPWDs) Chick Sama has described both projects as absolutely neccessary and timely. 

"From a study we carried out in the North West Region, we noticed that less than five percent of persons with disabilities have been served by humanitarian action whatsoever. By this numbers, we realised that there was need for humanitarian actors to refocused their actions to meet atleast the needs of 15percent of persons with disabilities in the North West Region." He said. 

Both projects will be implemented by the health services of the Cameroon Baptist Convention  whose director professor Tih Pius Muffih has assured of his institutions capacity to take the response indiscriminately to all in need. 

We are withholding the projects cost on request from the implementer Present to brief the press from
