Our society is involved in improving the awareness and prevention of major causes of illness in Cameroon. These include malaria, waterborne diseases and HIV/AIDS. We work in partnership with a student charity based in Yaounde, Cameroon called 'Come Over II' and for the past three years we have sent out a group of Edinburgh students to carry out projects in rural villages. Our main strategy is to educate people about these disease whilst distributing items such as condoms, insecticde, water sanitiser and diagnostic tests to aid disease prevention and early diagnosis. We are currently fundraising for our 2013 projects in Mengong, South Cameroon and Mbangako, West Cameroon. Nine UoE students studying medicine, biomedical sciences and French will be travelling out to Cameroon at the end of July to carry out the projects.
If you are interested in helping with fundraising or getting involved with next year's project, please get in touch!
