Angela is the smallest patient yet to benefit from the newly established Cardiac Center Outreach Department. We are pleased to announce that Angela's heart failure has already been successfully operated by Dr. Charles Mvondo.
Once we have collected the funds needed to pay for the operation costs, we will report again and thank you in advance for your much appreciated support!
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.
