Refugee Welfare Association
The Refugee Welfare Association (REWAC) is an indigenous, non profit organization registered under Cameroon law in the year 2009. It has as a mandate the protection, promotion and the enforcement of the rights of refugees, migrants, asylum seekers and IDPs as enshrined in International Law to which Cameroon is a Signatory. According to the UN Refugee Agency, Cameroon hosts over 200,000 refugees and asylum seekers from 26 countries. The challenge in realizing their rights cannot be left in the hands of the Cameroon government alone or the UN Refugee Agency. Indigenous initiatives like REWAC are indispensable to complement efforts made by other international development partners and governments to address the challenges posed by these group of vulnerable persons. It is therefore incumbent on us to raise the necessary financial resources from relevant donor organizations to address these challenges. Volunteers are not allowed to contact donors on our behalf. We shall give them a list of potential donors for them to develop winning proposals to be submitted by our organization to the various donors on specific issues.
