The death of two of Bible Society of Cameroon’s literacy facilitators has been a massive loss, not just to their families but to the translation project in the Podoko language, Parkwa. Other members of the community are also victims of frequent attacks and live in fear, often taking refuge in caves. The people were traumatised by what they witnessed and the stress of hiding out.
