Bamenda is one of the most densely populated cities in Cameroon. An elderly person in Bamenda said that taking care of the dead through various funeral services had become a big business in Cameroon. The population has about doubled in twenty years but the infrastructure has extremely deteriorated. Some areas are only accessible on moto-cycles or on foot. Mothers carry newborns on moto-cycles without helmets in a haze of fumes and dust from cars fit for the junkyard.
The purpose of the clinic is to tackle the health and quality of life conditions in three fronts. One is to provide pre-natal and post-natal care to would be mothers and mothers respectively. The second is to provide laboratory medical tests to patients who suffer from all types of medical conditions including diabetes, high-blood pressure and infectious diseases pravelent in areas with minimal preventive care. The third is connecting with the people in the community served by the clinic to provide education about health and preventive care and also partner with high schools and universities to train students. This clinic will be run by a husband and wife who have 60 years of experience between them providing medical care in very remote areas of Cameroon through Christian hospitals. The wife is a midwife and nurse. The husband is a nurse and medical laboratory administrator with additional experience in the Operating room. So to say they've seen pretty much all there is to see in acute and preventable medical conditions that extremely poor patients in the North West region of Cameroon suffer from, would certainly not be an overstatement. The goal of this fundraising petition here is for friends, acquaintances and others who have been petitioned, to donate. If you would like to donate but did not receive any request from the creator of this fundraiser to do so, then you can request to be kept informed of the progress of this project. The intent is to get the pre-natal, post-natal and some portions of laboratory tests, off the ground by the end of this year.
