This article is about thousands of refugees from the Central African Republic who are in Cameroon are, at the moment, facing a shortage of water, food, and proper shelter. According to Medecins Sans Frontieres, approximately, 22-thousand people have fled to Cameroon since te beginning of the year due to the violence since Seleka fighters seized power in March last year. This crisis has driven a million people from their homes. Fortunately, MSF has appealed for more help.
This helps me understand Africa better because it well shows the difficulties the refugees in Africa are having right now. In the Social Studies class we had been learning about the refugees in Africa. Most of them were in terrible conditions and many of the children in camp had lost their parents. There were not enough supplies and food for the refugees that they had to share every bit of the things they got. Most of the girls have to walk 2 hours just to get water.
This article reminded me of the film "War Dance" we watched in class. The refugees in the film were suffering from shortages of supplies and food like the refugees in Cameroon at the moment. I feel really sorry for them and if there is any way that I could help them, I would do it without hesitating.
