My name is Gavin and i am part of a small team that are happy to be helping Tata, Mercy and their organisation reach their goals.
I came across Tata online and having spoken with him a number of times i have been touched by his compassion and humility.
He feels a need to help others in his region and even globally. His vision is large and the needs on the ground are also significant.
"I am a humanitarian striving for the best for humanity across the globe. Sustainability is the key".
He lives in Bamenda, NW Cameroon.
Bamenda is not an easy place to live.
“I left Bamenda because there was a war. They were killing people and they were shooting guns,” says one student.
“We couldn’t study in Bamenda because of the crisis. Anytime we are in school, bullets falling on top of our classrooms, gunshots everywhere,”
another adds": https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/topics/clm1wxp5p5jt/cameroon
"Thousands of people have already fled their homes in cities like Bamenda, Buea and Kumba - at the epicenter of the conflict. Some have sought to hide out in the bush to escape the wrath of both the security forces and armed separatists": https://www.dw.com/en/a-new-surge-of-people-fleeing-cameroons-anglophone-regions/a-50186298
"Currently, New Vision is concerned with providing emergency relief to the many IDPs (internally displaced people / refugees in ones own country) currently taking refuge in the city of Bamenda, in the North West part of the country. Right now we are doing our best to supply food and medical care to those in need. However, with so many affected it is difficult for us to help all those who need it".
"Our project is not just about emergency relief. This is an organisation with long term, sustainable goals.
We are planning on achieving this by helping to rebuild the communities that have been lost in conflict".
"Mbiame New Vision have supported farmers with groundnuts seed, to have some to eat and some to sell.
We visit these farmers to evaluate progress of crop growth".
"Mbiame New Vision assisted the inhabitants of the city of Bamenda as volunteers in the sensitization and screening of Hepatitis B and C".
"Mbiame New Vision has been teaching internally displaced kids basics on reading and writing and safety rules in a crisis period.
We equally assisted them with writing materials".
"Mbiame New Vision has also supported kids in the outskirts of Mbiame with food to sustain them away from home"
"Mbiame new vision gets sanitary napkins to internally displaced girls ,who could not afford pads at menstruation"

Tata: "My entire dream is that my community/ village should be a reference village in Cameroon and Africa. My work will not be limited only to my village but will be done in any Rural Community facing the same problems or problems related to that of my village. The work so far started will never come to a stop for it is geared toward sustainability and development and equally training people what they do not know".
"Thank-you so much for your support. It means a lot to us!!".
Tata, Munyuy and the team.
