Madeleine and her family say THANK YOU!

We are delighted that Madeleine has been successfully operated by Dr. med. Charles Mvondo and his outstanding team. The post-treatment passed without compications and thus Madeleine was able to go home in a well-rested state.

Madeleine and her family are overjoyed and so are we. We thank all those who contributed in one or the other way to this success!

Madeleine is overjoyed to receive help at the Cardiac Center Outreach. Dr. Jean-Claude Ambassa has detected several heart valve defects that require urgent surgery.

Madeleine has been widowed for several years and has since taken care of her 7 children alone. She receives support from the wider family, but not enough for heart surgery. The mi-do donation community is happy to take over the costs for heart surgery!

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. Since 21st May 2019 the outreach clilic is operational! Eight patients have been operated upon successfully by the Cardiac Centre team! 

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 for the second group of patients.

We hope to be able to report here soon about the patient, who will benefit from this program.
