“The Church is the only institution left to offer humanitarian aid to refugees and displaced persons,” Father Fabio Mussi told the Fides news agency.

“International organizations have withdrawn for security reasons,” he continued. “We, as [the] Church in Cameroon, are sending food and preparing to dig wells in areas where the authorities have decided to build reception camps.”
