Through the mobile clinic, we have running in Manyu division in the Southwest region of Cameroon, we have the pleasure of building long term relationships with members of the community, such as Sally from Ndekwai. The mobile team first met Sally in April 2020 when she was 5 months pregnant. Sally has been disabled since birth, and due to her disability was at increased risk during childbirth. She was given her antenatal care by the clinic and was referred to the local hospital for a caesarean section. Due to her economic situation, she was supplied with the equipment for the operation and thankfully, it was a success and she gave birth to a healthy baby. She continued to attend the clinics with her baby and received her postnatal care as well. Unfortunately, Sally and the baby have been abandoned by her husband but thanks to the support of GlobalGiving, we can continue to offer them free health care as well as counselling her to ensure no further pregnancies until she is ready through family planning.
Sally is just one of many people living with disability Reach Outs mobile clinic has been able to support over the last 2 months. Out of the 1,273 people who saw the medical team for their health problems in November, 56 were people living with a disability, and 15 other women have been seen for antenatal care, an essential step in ensuring safe delivery.
thanks for your generosity. this is how far it goes to promote health care in a conflict-affected area in Manyu. As we keep on trying our best, many of such cases keep on flooding our mobile clinic while we will only trust on your generosity.
