I wish to thank each and everyone for the birthday wishes. It was a day of reflection and stock taking. 
The highlight was my visit to an IDP Camp. My heart bleeds for these young kids. It was nice playing with them and having a heart to heart discussion. I promise to visit again and this time I will come with the balls you requested. Thanks for the continuous support and love.
We cannot stop thanking you for your unconditional support. Keep on following us on our social media accounts (F, T & I) and visit our website https://www.chrda.org.

Cameroon: "122 villages raided, 82 severely affected"
CHRDA states that the torture and transfer of 18 Anglophone prisoners to Kondengui Central Prison (Yaoundé) violates the 2009 Decision of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights.
CHRDA's statement on the abduction, torture and murder of an officer of the Cameroon National Marines.
On 3 December 2017, Acha Anastasia was escaping an attack on her home in Kwa-Kwa (South West Region - Cameroon) but she was knocked down by a vehicle in that process.

Transferred to Saint Luke Clinic (Bokwai, Buea), they were able to operate her leg and she is actually walking on crutches.

Her grandparents with whom she lived have fled military raids after their home was set ablaze. 
But Anastasia has been at the hospital for over 8 months with an unpaid bill of 668,545 FCFA.

The Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa (CHRDA) prays on men and women of goodwill to show compassion and assist CHRDA in raising this amount to cater for Anastasia's medical bills.

Our Founder of the Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa (CHRDA), Barrister Nkongho Felix Agbor A. (popularly known as "Agbor Balla"), is a nominee and has demonstrated an unprecedented leadership, advocacy and communication skill since the Anglophone Crisis began in 2016.

He advocated and coordinated the pro bono litigation team of lawyers which saw the release of over 40 students arrested in November 2016 and condemned all violations, including looting, torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of students, civilians, and lawyers.

He created a Taskforce of Lawyer’s in FAKO that provides pro bono legal services to detainees in FAKO.

He leads a nonprofit which denounces human rights violations and other excesses by state and non-state actors and has recently exposed the torture of several detainees by the Cameroon government.

18 Anglophones have been transferred yesterday from Buea Central Prison to Kondengui Prison, Yaounde. These 18 detainees are currently detained in ‘Kosovo’, a section of Kondengui maximum security prison. 
They have been kept in tight chains and were brutally tortured last night by prison guards who repeatedly called them Ambazonians. This prompted a strike action in prison by other Anglophone inmates today. One of them has a decaying wound, another is suffering with a broken arm.

As a result of pressure and the strike action by other Anglophone inmates, the prison registrar said, orders from hierarchy demanded him to keep the detainees in chains for observation.

This is a repeated pattern of treatment upon Southern Cameroonians and alleged separatists, none of their rights are respected, presumption of innocence seems not to exist and authorities act with impunity. —Agbor Nkongho

In Dakar, Senegal for the launching of Amnesty’s report on violence and human rights violations in Anglophone regions of Cameroon.

This report and stories from over 150 victims by Amnesty, corroborates more than a thousand findings, investigations and recordings from victims which Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa has documented for almost 2 years now.

The facts are available for the international community. It is time to isolate the government of Cameroon, review military cooperation in cases of gross human rights violations and where weapons meant for fighting against Boko Haram have been transferred to Anglophone regions and have been used against civilians. —Agbor Nkongho
