The civil war that has exploded within the Central African Repubilc (CAR) over the past couple of years has culminated into what can only be described as genocide resulting in horrific atrocities against mankind; in particular the innocent Muslim civilians that have been targeted in this power struggle. Hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to surrounding areas - no matter how far - to save their own lives and the lives of their precious children.

Cameroon is just next door to CAR, and there are a number of refugee camps stationed not very far from the very areas that Okala Foundation operates in. While our mandate is to help in whatever capacity to improve the lives of the children and villagers of the locations we operate in, we simply CANNOT stand by and idly watch the events unfold without doing something to help. Living conditions in refugee camps are deplorable at best, with the likelihood of contractable diseases running rampant due to the sheer volume of inhabitants as well as shortages of food and medicine. It's a grim prospect to say the least.

The Okala Foundation has passionately decided to step up and assist in whatever capacity possible to alleviate the suffering of those who are trapped in the refugee camps through no choice of their own, except for the choice of wanting to LIVE!  They are not able to strike out a new life of their own to earn a living and contribute to the foreign society they find themselves in no matter how much they wish it so, as they have no entitlement to farm any local lands and jobs are scarce to non-existent.

The Okala Foundation's mandate is to improve the lives of those in the villages we serve, but we are first and foremost not only a charitable organization, but a humanitarian organization. We simply want to provide a truckload of food to help feed one of these refugee camps whether it be for days or weeks, and at least do SOMETHING! We can't possibly help them all, but we can certainly help some. We can show them we care. Won't you help us?

Join us and help us make just one small difference in the lives of many. Thank you all for your continued love and support.
