Although it is the season for onions in the north of Cameroon most stalls in Meme's market have dishevelled red onions to sell. One onion costs about 10 CFA (GBP 0.01p) from the market.<br />
The extreme north of Cameroon is suffering a food shortage exacerbated by climate change and conflict with Boko Haram. Fighting has spread across the borders from Nigeria into the countries of the Lake Chad region creating a refugee and famine crisis. Once an intrepid tourist destination boasting Waza national park, the extreme north of Cameroon now hosts people fleeing violence housed in unnamed refugee camps where they are lucky if they manage to get a single meal each day.
