A nongovernmental organization in Cameroon, ASCOVIME, in partnership with an electrical power plant Kribi Power Development company (KPDC), have donated medication to over 700 people as well as free medical services and surgeries to the people of Mpolongwe village , in the Ocean division.
It was during a medical campaign that took place on Saturday July 13th, 2019, at Government Primary School Mpolongwe, Kribi. The free medical services offered to the people of Mpolongwe by a team of medical personnel from ASCOVIME included, general medical consultants, dental and eye care, gynecology and cardiology consultations, but these, with free medical surgeries scheduled for the London integrated medical center Kribi in the days ahead. “It is part of my company’s social policy to take care of the underprivileged in the society, so the partnership with ASCOVIME, was born “Bruno Ngatchou, General Manager of KPDC said. ASCOVIME is a Cameroonian local initiative whose target is to reduce the suffering of the masses by bringing to the needy, special weekly medical care. “We visit one village to the next every weekend, set up a mobile clinic and give dental, eye, cardiac, and gynecology services, all free of charge, Doctor Bwelle George, a surgeon at the Yaounde General Hospital and founder of ASCOVIME affirmed. “ASCOVIME is opened to any kind of collaboration where benefactors aim at putting a smile on the faces of the needy. We have in the past received medical assistance from the Cameroon government through its health ministry”, added Doctor Bwelle. However ASCOVIME is still in need of more medical supplies and volunteers as well as medical facilities to carry out surgeries. This is according to Doctor Bwelle George, who doubles as president of the NGO. The event was crowned by the distribution of free delivery kits to some pregnant women of Mpolongwe and clothes to new born babies.
