5 June 2019, Gado, Cameroon: Victorine Issowe is part of the host community in Gado, which has received more than 25,000 refugees from nearby Central African Republic. Today she is part of a group of 10 women, five from the host community and five refugees, who run a grain store for women. At a storage building in central Gado, they sell grains and flour, and rent out space for farmers who need space to store their own crops before consumption. The grain store has grown out of a livelihood-supporting activity of the Lutheran World Federation's World Service programme, and the women make sure to save 2,000 CAF per person every month, so they can also help other people in the community, particularly people with special needs. Supported by the Lutheran World Federation, the Gado refugee camp in he East region of Cameroon hosts more than 25,000 refugees from neighbouring Central African Republic.
