MTN Foundation, first corporate foundation in Cameroon, is pleased to announce the launch of its traditional #YelloXmasTree caravan on 16 December 2022 in Limbe, South-West Region. This 9th edition of our Caravan is mainly focused on internally displaced children.
Indeed, a 2020 report by the Ministry of Social Affairs indicates that there are approximately 437,000 internally displaced persons in Cameroon, most of whom are women and children, facing a serious humanitarian situation.
With the celebration of Y’ello Xmas Tree, MTN Foundation is part of the global effort to support the most vulnerable among the displaced, especially those under 15 years of age. MTN Foundation therefore hopes to enable these children to celebrate Christmas with joy while receiving gifts.
In addition to Limbe, the cities of Bamenda in the North-West Region, Bertoua in the East Region and Ebolowa in the South Region will also be visited by the #YelloXmas caravan.
Celebrating Christmas is an important activity of the MTN Foundation. Since 2013, more than 10,000 children from over 100 orphanages and foster homes have been supported through this initiative, made possible through the contribution of MTN Cameroon employees.
” MTN Foundation is particularly sensitive to issues related to the development of children notably the underprivileged. With this initiative, we continue to give them back smile and hope,” reassured Danielle MBOME, Executive Secretary of the MTN Foundation.
