We wish to share the medical campaign report with you in our mission of Futru – Nkwen from the 23rd – 25th of June 2021. This Campaign was organized within the context of the socio-political crisis that has traumatized many children and their families within the past four years in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon. Under the theme “Clean soul on a Health Body,” our objective was to extend our support to the vulnerable persons who have been directly or indirectly affected by the Anglophone Crisis. To realize our aim, we engaged a team of Piarist Volunteers in the different medical domains and giving free medications to the patients. In addition, we had a group of Specialists for General consultations, Dentists, Psychologists, First Aid assistants, Pharmacists, Nurses, Educators. The beneficiaries were mostly Christians from our Parish of Futru and their children in our Schools. Apart from medical screening, they were also given talks in the various domains of health – Hygiene and sanitation, Covid 19, violence and trauma, love and forgiveness.
At the end of the exercise, about 700 persons benefitted from the Campaign and received free medication. This is the fourth edition of the free medical Campaign that the Piarist volunteers in the Province of Central Africa are organizing to respond to the medical needs of some of our brothers and sisters. It should be remarked that a high percentage of the population in this locality do not have access to a Doctor and medication.
We express our gratitude to the community of Futru and all our Collaborators who were involved in the Campaign – the Medical Doctors, Nurses, Psychologists, Educators, Piarist brothers. Special gratitude to SAAP that provided us with a consignment of the medications.
