Fresh Impetus

December 2020 was a remarkable month. For the first time, Open Dreams Scholars in Bamenda, Buea, Douala and Yaoundé - Cameroon went deep into the hospitals with assistance to parents and kids enduring birth challenges. The outreach was unique and full of lots of lessons to learn. The scholars engaged medical practitioners, pediatricians, nurses, hospital authorities, social services and health-care providers on the major challenges they face while helping pregnant mothers to deliver safely. It's been a year long period of studies, research and engagement in medical education. Several communities where only basic medical services are available have been visited and health talks delivered alongside essential handouts. We have stepped up discussions on sexual reproductive health on the media while encouraging parents to take it as a duty a home; we also encourage schools to have that as part of their curriculum. The climax of that occurred as part of our team of scholars, had the Minister of Youth Affairs and Civic Education, chair the launching of a manual for schools in Cameroon which they authored.

This year, we have a focused group of female doctors who have taken up this cause. Some of them have had admission into graduate program on full scholarship. They are extremely active in community education on social media, TV/Radio Channels and community visits (volunteering).

As December 2021 approaches, we are looking into several outreach programs, accessing new communities and delivering essential medical assistance and sensitization. We are also looking into supporting more girls in medical schools working in the area of preventing maternal and infant mortality. All of these programs are planned for December 2021 and January 2022 and we are so excited about the prospects of working on this life-saving endeavor at a higher level. Your support to keep us going is so essential. Thank you for enabling us to serve the community in very impactful and life-saving ways
