Cameroon "paying the price" for generosity taking in refugeesListen /
Cameroon is "paying the price" for its generosity taking in hundreds of thousands of refugees, without having secured extra resources.
That's the view of Najat Rochdi, Humanitarian Coordinator for the UN Development Group, in the West African country.
The Cameroonian government together with the UN and partner organizations, launched a US$310 million response plan on Wednesday, to provide life-saving assistance to 1.2 million people in the north and east of the country.
Ms Rochdi explained to Isabelle Dupuis, that the international community needed to match the hospitality and selflessness of Cameroon, as it confronts a political and humanitarian crisis on several fronts.
