Job Description: Context

Cameroon is compounded by three conflict-related humanitarian crises: in addition, the secondary impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have further exacerbated the needs in the country. Incursions by Armed Organized Groups (AOGs) in the Lack Chad Basin have resulted into 114,000 Nigerians seeking refuge in Cameroon and a further 322,000 Cameroonians as IDPs in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. Cameroon’s Eastern regions are still home to nearly 300,000 refugees from the Central African Republic and the third crisis is the on-going violence in the two English-speaking regions of North-west and South-west where nearly one million Cameroonians have been displaced due to this crisis.

NRC has been operational in Cameroon since April 2017, and currently has five field offices; Maroua and Kousseri in the Far North; Buea in the South-west; Bamenda in the North-west and Batouri in the East.
