Healthcare – Cameroon

In our efforts to help build healthy rural, suburban and urban communities in Cameroon, the Cameroonian-Canadian Foundation (CCF) / la Fondation Camerounaise-Canadienne (FCC) is seeking collaboration and partnership in order to provide healthcare material, equipments, information, education, counseling and activities,  building and/or help building/renovating new healthcare and medical centers in villages and cities in Cameroon. Our goal and hope is to help at list 1-2 million patients  received adequate and free treatment in the upcoming 5-10 years.

The Foundation is looking for partnership  with various organizations, local authorities, communities and individuals,to build one healthcare center in the  city of Lomié located at 310 km from Bertoua in southeasten Cameroon and one of the poorest districts in the country. In 2007, it had only 2 medical doctors for every 15,000 people and 60 teachers in primary and secondary education.

Although this district is near to an important cobalt and zinc exploitation area as well as  close to the Dja Faunal Reserve which is Cameroon’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site, the village has only a single access road similar to a little forest trail. This road is difficult to access during the raining season and connects Lomié to Abong-Mbang or to Yokadouma.  Lomié is also a region known with a sleeping disease or sickness called trypanosomiasis and the proposed clinic will also serve 15 villages and more than 10,000 community members. With the two healthcare centers, we are hoping to serve to help 25,000 poorest people regardless of their financial abilities to pay as all consultations will be free and supported by the Foundation. We are estimating that we need approximately $250,000 to build the proposed two healthcare centers.
