Last week, Cameroon pro-government elite force, the Rapid Intervention Battalion, known by its French acronym, BIR offered free consultation and medical assistance to some 230 localities (villages) in Meme Division of the South West region.
The initiative was much welcome and appreciated by the population who suffer lack of medical support due to the ongoing armed confrontation that continues to ravage the South West and North West regions.

As a result of the ongoing civil war, hospitals and health centers in most interior parts of the Anglophone regions have been raised down. Equally, most health personnel have escaped the insecurity to urban centers where relative calm still reigns.
The officials of the elite force used the occasion to drum for more support and collaboration with the population saying, “BIR is for peace, not war.”
Similar exercises have been carried out in most localities throughout the two Anglophone regions. BIR forces have also been engaged in distributing humanitarian support to the affected population as they fight to root separatist fighters and maintain the unity of Cameroon.
