The Regional Coordinator of the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Center (DDR) Bamenda says making the place productive and comfortable for the ex-fighters of the armed conflict in the two Anglophone Regions of Cameroon is his top priority for now.

Kum Henry Ichu was speaking Friday 15 July 2022 after empowering the center with 5000 day-old chicks and bags of fowl feed where he also indicated that he wants to transform DDR Bamenda in to a Production Center.

The 5000 Day-Old Chicks Already At The Center

The aim of the donation according to Kum Henry Ichu is to make life worth living for those at the center and to empower the former fighters so that they can have something doing and batter take care of themselves. He said after learning, it is time to engage in practicals.
The children at the center also need to have a good life by engaging in activities that can fetch them some cash in order for them be contented. We have trained them on poultry farming, piggery, among others. They will grow and market the chicks so as to empower themselves economically, Kum Henry said.
As to how the ex-fighters will be taking care of the chicks, the DDR Coordinator said clausters will be created for better management of the baby birds.

Quizzed on how the new DDR Center is faring, Kum said some of the inmates are there to clean the compound among other activities.

The 5000 day-old chicks were well received by the boys and girls at the DDR Center who celebrated and said they will make sure the baby birds are well catered for so that the desired goals can be achieved at the end of the day.

It should be borne in mind that the 5000 day-old chicks were made available thanks to Kum Henry's cordial relationship with the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries (MIPEPIA) and The North West Livestock Developement Find (CDENO).
