Project Description and Impact
Computer Science Students helped us designed a telemedicine app for consulting refugees, IDPs and patients who are victims of the war currently going on in Southern Cameroons. We need an expert to go through the app and optimize it so that it can be used by doctors in the diaspora to help our people.
Between April and June of 1994, 800,000 Rwandans were slaughtered in less than 100 days. The international community closed its eyes. Unlike other atrocities of the 20th century, the Rwandan genocide unfolded before the public eye. Journalists, radio broadcasters and TV news reporters covered the events live from the ground. The world’s largest peacekeeping force UN troops stood by and did not intervene. After The Rwandan Genocide the UN Promised 'Never Again' to stand by and allow another genocide to happen.
Barely two decades active after Rwanda, another Genocide currently going on in Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia. Since November 2016, an estimated 15000 civilians have been killed by soldiers of La Republique du Cameroun (LRC). According to the UNHCR, over 200,000 people having fled to Nigeria as refugees, and over 400,000 internally displaced.
As in the Rwandan Genocide, these Southern Cameroonian Genocide has not been well reported to the world by international media including CNN, BBC, Aljazeera, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International etc,. Also, the international community, and especially the UN stands by and watches people being slaughtered with impunity. Please see a short documentary by the BBC on the genocide.
