Yeah? Like, they came to round up all their strays?:histerica Pretty cool they gave to help though and they live in bales of hay or whatever!

A simple act of friendship from Shreveport to the distant people of Cameroon has led to an extraordinary gift of compassion from the villages, and now an historic visit by the village chiefs to our corner of the world. Friday evening, five african chiefs from Cameroon, dressed in their african attire, arrived at Shreveport Regional Airport for a visit. Members of Shreveport-Bossier Community Renewal visited Cameroon last year after the chiefs expressed in our community renewal program. As a result, a bond of friendship was established and then expressed in a mighty way after Hurricane Katrina. More than 3,000 villagers in Cameroon, living in isolated villages with no running water, donated a total of $865 to help hurricane victims in Louisiana. "We're going to take their gift and we're taking that gift to the governor and we're going to ask that the governor to challenge the entire state of Louisiana to give proportionately as the villages have given," said Mack McCarter of SBCR. Next Wednesday, the chiefs will visit New Orleans to see the hurricane damage. The villages of Cameroon and Shreveport Bossier Community Renewal have also won the attention of the United Nations. SBCR has signed an agreement to be the community-building model worldwide.
