Strategic Planning and Implementation
Break moments after intensive work
Dear GlobalGiving Community,
We had the great honor to institute our first Aviva Scholar, studying medicine at the University of Bamenda. She has the following statement to share, as she accepted the opportunity:
"I am passionate about enabling people to live a healthy life and to fulfil their life objectives. I am a lover of Children. As part of my clinical practice in the hospital in Bamenda, I have witnessed how the inadequate medical facilities and personnel have led to the dead of several babies, deferring the dreams of their parents. I dream of becoming a neonatologist in order to promote good maternal and child health to reduce infant mortality in our community. I believe every child has the right to live and to fulfil their dreams".
In addition to the pomp and pageantry that accompanied the celebrartion of the Aviva Day 2022, the insitution of the Aviva Scholar comes to add more momentum to the concept of curbing neonatal mortality through health research and education, which we have been actively promoting in the community.
In the last few weeks, we have been working on finalizing our biggest health outreach program for community women in some of the remotest parts of the conflict-affected North West Region of Cameroon. In partnership with "Talk Pregnancy with Dr Noella", an NGO that fosters marternal and child welfare, we hope to reach more people especially pregnant women and young girls in dire need of medical care.
We thank you for supporting this humanitarian cause. As more medical personnel at Open Dreams sign up to this responsibility, we believe in greater accomplishments ahead. We count on your donations to keep going.
