Provide care for orphans in Cameroon

Requested by

Abang Ashu Academy (3A)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

We operate in Eyangntui Village and Mamfe Town. The economy here is agrarian in nature. The major economic activity in and around the villages is subsistence agriculture. There are no hospitals or clinics in Eyangntui Village. The village doesn’t have electricity or piped water so that people drink directly from the river without any purification or filtering system. This means that children suffer from waterborne diseases. There are also many mosquitoes which transmit malaria, and the the shallow toilets that attract flies also help to transmit disease.

We want to do something about the poor hygiene existing in the area, and that particularly affects children.

What is your project and how will it help?

We want to run a child care project that will help children to look after themselves better. The project aims to provide better food, clean drinking water and basic medical care and educational support for orphans and destitute children.

2- To provide clean drinking water to all children in need;
