Hit by three humanitarian crises
4.4 million people in need
49.660 refugees
138.152 people returned
25.532 people helped


The Far North region of Cameroon was once again one of the worst affected in 2022. This area was faced with poverty, climate shocks, as well as insecurity due to armed conflict and intercommunity violence.

As a result of this situation, food security deteriorated for the region’s inhabitants. The multi-sectoral assessment carried out by SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL in November 2022 showed that 68.6% of households in Logone-et-Chari, 23% of households in Mayo-Tsanaga and 27.5% of households in Mayo-Sava have a low “Food Consumption Score” (FCS).

In total, over 573,000 people were displaced, including 385,373 internally displaced persons, 138,152 returnees and 49,660 refugees outside camps (IOM, August 2022). These population movements forced people to abandon their livelihoods, further undermining their food and economic security.

During 2022, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL continued to provide emergency food assistance and improve access to basic water, sanitation and hygiene services for the most vulnerable populations in the Far North region of Cameroon.

In parallel, our team continued to promote and cooperate with local civil society organizations. In December 2022, our NGO signed a three-year contract for a project to improve the resilience of the population and increase the influence of civil society. The initial objective of this contract is to increase the capacity of our long-standing local partner, Tammounde Speranza, so that it can work autonomously.
