After a decades-long experience (from 1977 until 2011), COOPI made its return in Cameroon in June 2017 to face the humanitarian crisis affecting local populations in the Logone and Chari departments, located in the Far North Region. Throughout the last years, the situation in such area has gotten worse due to the violence spread by terrorist group Boko Haram, resulting in a massive displacement of refugees and migrants.

COOPI started two emergency projects: one concerning education and the second about food and nutrition security. The former provides education to children and boys between 5 and 18 years of age by renovating schools, supplying school material and covering related expenses. The latter helps families in becoming alimentary self-sufficient by reviving the agricultural sector and distributing food to the most vulnerable. Moreover, it supports mothers so that they are able to receive proper nutrition, for themselves and for their newborns as well.
