“There is a lot of what I could call ignorance among the people of Cameroon. The country has a good amount of tree cover. There are lots of heavy forests and the people have food. They therefore take so much for granted,” Fr. Innocent said.
The member of the Mill Hill Missionaries added, “Cameroon is a land of plenty. And even though we have started experiencing changing weather patterns, the people simply can’t piece everything together. They cut trees to build houses and never care to plant other trees. They think that the forests will be here forever.”
The same ignorance, the Priest says, is manifested in the way in which people negligently throw plastics around and destroy the environment.
