Cameroon expatriates meet for serious business
In addition to wiring money for Christmas, there are occasions throughout the year, such as a cry die (funeral) or a born house (baby shower) and one or the other emergency that requires extra cash.
However, this past Saturday, August 28th the group of Cameroonians came together to work on something more permanent. The women and two husbands came together to hear a proposal from AIDSfreeAFRICA to get involved in fundraising to establish revolving drug funds.
The group agreed to focus on Mbengwi and Nkwen first. These two villages are still close to the large city of Bamenda, but in the future the group will venture further into the remote villages which are in desperate need to access medicine.
AIDSfreeAFRICA is pleased with the energy, enthusiasm and warm welcome.
