WHO WE ARE
We seek to rally and engage communities, social groups, faith-based institutions, and individuals to work for the wellbeing of vulnerable and underprivileged persons in their communities
Our vision is to lead civil society and communities in Cameroon to a conscious culture of actively and systematically caring for the vulnerable and underprivileged across the entire country.
FOMCAM is a community based mental health, non-governmental, not-for-profit, non-political, humanitarian organization with its head office in Bamenda, North West Region of the Republic of Cameroon. The organization was created in Bamenda, North West Region (NWR), Republic of Cameroon.
We are legally registered as a charitable not-for-profit organization with Ref. Reg. No. 1 2 / e. 2 9 / 1 1 1 1 / v o l .8 /APPB/14/05/2008 in response to concerns raised by the risky behaviours of orphan vulnerable children, widows, and the internally displaced persons abandoned by their relatives; with little or no support. Their frustration in the cities from the rural communities with the hope of being gainfully employed, earn a better life, education and personal development. Compounded by the high rate of poverty in the cities, these vulnerable class are allowed to faith in an unsafe space/environments. The absence of a safe space for this vulnerable allows for preys to plow with impunity on them thus increasing their vulnerability and mental health problems/illnesses.
In striving to survive without success, they become delinquent, school runner-ways (drop outs), drug addicts or harden criminals and choosing the easy way as cheap commercial sex workers as a means to survival. A few with meager jobs as housekeepers, nannies or sales girls/boys often get exploited/marginalized as they do not know their rights or are frustrated.
