Care of the Ageing, Needy and the Underprivileged

Unverified non-profit organisation

CANU Association Cameroon- a nonpolitical, non-religious inclined and not for profit association- started in 2008 in Bafut North West Region Cameroon, is a community development organization aimed at changing the living conditions of people in Cameroon, especially those of the rural communities where health care, portable water, electricity, education and others are inaccessible, lacking or unaffordable. The Association runs outreach programs in health and training, education/scholarship schemes to the underprivileged while at the same time strives to establish power plants in isolated communities which will help develop the areas and connect them to world at large. To better the health conditions of the communities serviced, the Association is putting up health centers where health professional and proper health care can be available at an affordable cost to all in alignment with Goal 3 of the Sustainable Development Goals.
