Humanitarian assistance to the UNHCR's operation in Cameroon

Description

The humanitarian situation in Cameroon has worsened during 2014 due to the crisis situations in the neighbouring countries, and the need for humanitarian assistance has quadrupled from 2013. There are over 240 000 refugees in the country, half of whom have fled from the Central African Republic during the past year. The intensification of the attacks by the Nigerian islamist group Boko Haram has deepened the humanitarian crisis especially in Northern Cameroon. The country operation of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is severely underfunded, with only a fifth of the needed around 58 million euros covered. The proposal is for 1 500 000 euros of humanitarian aid to Cameroon through UNHCR.
