Ripplezoo in aid of Cameroon
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 volunteers have been involved in improving the living conditions for people living in one of the poorest and most disadvantaged areas of Africa.
Ripplezoo has now led two volunteer trips to Cameroon, one in 2018 and more recently November 2019. There is still so much to be done so in 2021 WE WILL GO BACK!
Unfortunately, this year 2020, due to Covid-19, Ripplezoo are unable to make the trip. We will however fundraise 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.
ON NOVEMBER 23RD 2019,
13 VOLUNTEERS TRAVELLED
And once again, hundreds of Cameroonian people who have so little and suffer terribly, once again know that there are people in the world who love and care for them.
As a result of the kind donations and support from so many, we were able to achieve the following:

In 2018 our volunteers brought in a water supply to the hospital in Batoufam and installed toilets, sinks and showers.
We also renovated classrooms in the local primary school and provided books to all 90 students. We installed 20 computerized work-stations in a community hall to support an education initiative for the locals.
Thanks to all of YOU and the generous donations through out the year we managed to achieve the following:
