Everything went well!
Juliette was the first patient to be operated in the new outstation of the Cardiac Center. On May 21, 2019, Juliette has been operated successfully by Dr. Charles Mvondo and his team. She responded very well to the subsequent treatment and was able to be discharged in a well-rested state.
Juliette and her entire family express their wholehearted thanks to the Cardiac Centre team for the professional and loving care and for the generous support of the mi-do community!
Juliette is the first patient to benefit from the outstation of the Cardiac Center in Yaoundé, and we are pleased that she was successfully operated on May 21, 2019, by the Shisong team. Dr. Charles Mvondo and his team have corrected a severe mitral valve defect. Great!
Cardiac Centre Outreach Yaounde
Due to the socio-political crisis in Cameroon since autumn 2016, work at the Cardiac Center Shisong is significantly impaired. The violence in the SouthWest and NorthWest has been escalating, many streets are impassable and patients can not come safely to the heart center. Likewise, no guest doctors can visit the heart center. Since October 2018, operations had to be canceled.
How to help?
For this reason, a very special rescue mission has been launched - a Cardiac Centre Outreach department will be established in a safe place - in Yaoundè, the capital of Cameroon. In early summer 2019 the outreach clilic should be operational.
This is made possible by the involvement of several organizations. With the help of the MI-DO donation community, we want to support this rescue mission. Therefore we start already with fundraising for the costs of surgery.
We hope to be able to report here soon about the patient, who will benefit from this program.
