Help Mbosha women build a primary health centre.

by Self Reliance Promoters' NGO Vetted since 2009 Site Visit Verified


This project run by local women will provide essential primary healthcare to the 900 residents of Mbosha village and the many surrounding villages situated in this very rural region of NW Cameroon. We have been able to construct the health post which volunteers will have the opportunity work and improve the heal; the situation of this community. If we finally equip it, the health post will help to offer intensive primary health care service and organized essential vaccination programs etc.

total goal
monthly donors


Cameroon's total spend (i.e. for life) on healthcare of only $80 per capital means that access to health care for all is very limited. For every 1000 births, 149 children die before the age of 5. This issue is magnified in rural areas such as Mbosha village. Here the nearest hospital is over an hour away along mountainous dirt tracks, inaccessible in emergencies. This project will provide access to primary healthcare and infant monitoring program for the 900 villagers and surrounding area.


The project will run a weekly surgery, have a resident mid wife, sell and provide advice on medicines, monitor all children under the age of 5 and run an antenatal clinic. Educate the village and outlying villages on basic health care. With the help of cheerful givers through Global giving,, we have constructed two main blocks, and currently we want to do the finishing touches and then equip the Health post to create more departments like the Pharmacy, the Laboratory Labour and delivery room.

Long-Term Impact

Separate rooms available for each department. No longer will women be required to give birth in the same vicinity as those admitted for illness. Babies have a higher survival chance. 1000's of people will have access to a higher quality of healthcare. The health centre will have a well equipt pharmacy.
