Cameroon

Cameroon is a bilingual country. It has the Anglophone and Francophone regions of the country both historically ruled by different colonial powers. However on 1 January 1960, French Cameroon got its independence. On 1 October 1961, the former British Cameroon joined with French Cameroon to become a republic. 

For years, Francophone Cameroonians have ruled the country with very few representation from Anglophone Cameroonians. In recent years, Francophone Cameroon has greatly oppressed and ostracised Anglophone Cameroon resulting in violence, destruction of infrastructure and little support for civil servants and closure of schools in the English speaking regions. This has led to many Cameroonians fleeing to neighbouring country Nigeria for refuge.

Here are prayers and updates on the prevailing socio-political situation:
