Thousands of Cameroonians to benefit from free healthcare soon

Six thousand Cameroonians will soon benefit from free medical services from an international NGO. Mercy Ships will, from August 2017, handle complicated conditions needing high-tech surgery.

Mercy Ships will settle at the Douala Sea Port, where it will carry out the ten-month programme.

The NGO was invited to Cameroon by the head of State at the backdrop of growing health concerns in the country, especially for the financially unstable.

Registrations are ongoing in all the ten regions of the country, till 17th May 2017.

Transportation, lodging and feeding are all free: no patient will remove a penny from their pocket, say the authorities in Yaounde.

Interested persons can get to their health district or regional delegation for ample information or registration.

In the meantime, registration teams are complaining of some hitches on the part of the public, as some persons, especially the elderly, bring up just any minute type of ailment, like waist pain.

Mercy Ships is an international NGO based in Texas, the Unites States of Amercia. Founded in 1978 by Donald Stephens (and Deyon Stephens, co-founder), the mission of the humanitarian organization is  to provide free healthcare and improve healthcare delivery  systems in the poorest nations of the world.

With its slogan as “Bringing hope and healing”, Mercy Ships lays emphasis on surgery, healthcare and development. So far, it has operated in more than 50 developing nations, and about 18 developed countries.
