Due to conflict and climate change disasters, many communities the southwest region of Cameroon have been displaced and face food shortages and cholera outbreaks. Women and youth from the Wovia Village located in Limbe worked together in this Creative Action project to raise awareness of, and provide solutions to, the issues of malnutrition, food shortages, poor food hygiene and its cause of disease in their community. As part of the project, they mapped out suitable locations for cultivating and selling food products around the village and created a giant storybook and posters to educate the population on healthy nutrition and food sanitation practices.
