USA African Women Education Donates Medication To Bali Population 

By Chris Mbunwe

The population of Mantum, a village in Bali Subdivision of the Northwest Region recently received free medication from an American based NGO, African Women Education and Development Partnership.

At Mantum, the head of the team and CEO of the organisation, Mrs. Veronica Kette Nachvomah, in collaboration with doctors and nurses from the Bali Divisional District Hospital, diagnosed and handed medication to hundreds of patients who could not have access to medical care due to poverty.

After the tedious exercise that lasted for a whole day, Mrs. Kette Nachvomah expressed joy that she and her team have contributed in saving the lives of people. "We discovered several fathers, mothers and young healthy people came to this treatment centre out of excitement but never knew their blood pressure had gone too high to the point where they could run into a stroke and eventually die.

We gave them drugs that brought the high pressure to its normal level but referred them for regular controls at the divisional hospital. We equally diagnosed and treated malaria that has held some people down for a while and they left happy."  "Most importantly I want to thank the Chief Medical Officer for Bali subdivision Dr. Pius Kuo, who facilitated our job and provided a lot of assistance that led to the success story," she said.

Mrs. Nachvomah said they are prepared to come back and do more to alleviate the health conditions of people in Africa-Cameroon and Northwest, Southwest as focus.  "Why I had to start in Bali Subdivision is because this is the land of my birth and my grandmother came from Mantum Village. Next screening exercise and donation of free drugs and food items like the rice, salt, I brought will be done in Buea where I worked and lived.  My sole idea is to get the health of the rural poor on a straight line which is a better way of expressing my appreciation," Mrs. Nachvomah explained.

One of the beneficiaries, Buma, 65, expressed thanks to Mrs. Nachvomah, saying his health is assured for the pains he had have started subsiding six hours after taking some of the medication. Two nurses from Wales, England; Keri Hill and Wendy Turkie accompanied Mrs. Nachvomah to Bali and assisted in diagnosing and administering the drugs.
