Cameroon is a country in Central Africa, bordered by Nigeria and Chad. It has a population of 26 million of which 40% are living in poverty.
Ripplezoo has now led two volunteer trips to Cameroon, one in 2018 and more recently November 2019. During these trips we achieved the following:
Installation of a water supply, toilets, and showers to the Centre De Sante Integre, Batoufam.
Delivery of a 40-foot container both years, containing €500, 000 worth of donated medical equipment and medication. This equipment was distributed to hospitals and clinics in the area but also to individual homes, where one crutch or wheelchair made such a difference.
Renovation of 6 classrooms and installation of latrines at Ecole St Andre De Batoufam.
Installation of a trench around the school to prevent flooding of the classrooms so the children can attend school during the rainy season.
Delivery of schoolbooks to over 200 children through the fundraising efforts of Irish schools.
Visits to orphanages delivering clothes, toys, and some medical equipment where necessary.
Unfortunately, this year 2020, due to Covid-19, Ripplezoo are unable to make the trip. We will however fundraiser to send a container and medical equipment to Cameroon. We will miss our Cameroon friends but will continue to support them in any way we can.
Join us in any way you can to help make a difference in the lives of these very poor people.
