PCC Moderator highlights humanitarian actions of the church, projects into 2023

Rt Rev Fonki Samuel Forba, Moderator PCC

About 60,000 Cameroonians have benefited from the humanitarian activities of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, PCC, for the year 2022.

While reviewing and making known the humanitarian activities of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon as per data gathered for the year 2022, the Moderator of the PCC, the Rt Rev Fonki Samuel Forba enunciates that despite the number of people reached, the humanitarian domain faced lots of challenges.

"It was not an easy task because everybody was looking up to the church as a source of hope but because the church was deep into the crisis in Anglophone Cameroon, we were unable to meet the needs of every Christian or Cameroonian that came to us. Even up till now, I receive messages of one trouble or the other of children sick in the hospital, children dropping out of school seeking support from the church. So in a circumstance like that where we could not meet the needs of people, it was challenging for us", Rev. Fonki said.

With the challenges faced in 2022, the moderator described the impact of the church's humanitarian work as a "little drop of water in an ocean" while reaffirming the church's duty to be a symbol of hope and a peace broker.

"Our work did not create any impact at all as I would have loved it to be but God knows that we tried our best and we will continue to be a symbol of hope to our people because if the church stops being hopeful then the world is lost. So in our mega resources, we are still hopeful that in 2023, we will continue the humanitarian activities and make the Presbyterian church more relevant in the lives of our people and the lives of Cameroonians and we will not only continue to play our humanitarian role but also see how we can be a peace broker to bring normalcy in our two regions in our sermons, actions, humanitarian activities", he highlighted.

For the last six years, the two English-speaking regions have been living in a conflict that has led to the loss of lives, hate,  anger, discrimination, and division.

As the humanitarian domain of the PCC continues to support people who have been affected in one way or the other, these Cameroonian have also been commissioned to let go of the past and embrace peace.

"We hurt ourselves in the year 2022 and the years before 2022. We should let go of all the problems, the hurt, and, the pain in 2022 and face 2023 with lots of optimism. Open arms to show love, to show care, and show kindness to one another. Christ is the brains of peace and he has come into the world for peace. We should give peace a chance".

The Presbyterian Church in Cameroon has projects in the domain of evangelism, growing and building infrastructures for the church, and most especially the humanitarian domain that has been mapped out for 2023 with the hope that it will be an impactful year.

In the year 2022, the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, PCC, realized what became known as the Faith Project. The project now houses major offices of the church.

According to the Moderator of the church, the name of the project reflects its success of the project.

"It is called the Faith project because we knew Christians of the PCC were going through a lot as far as the crisis was concerned. We decided to launch the project and allow it to the faith of the Christians", Rev. Fonki said.

While calling on Cameroonians and Presbyterians to let go of the past, the PCC Moderator noted that peace is a very common commodity but very expensive.

"We hurt ourselves in 2022 and the years before. So we have realized that we need to leave together and be brothers and sisters, we need to forgive each other", he said.

Because Christ is the prince of peace, he called on all Presbyterians and Christians to live in peace with love for one another.
