Support For Africa would like to thank Unite
Group Plc for sponsoring the charity’s
fourth healthcare centre in Cameroon.
We are fortunate to have teamed up with Prof.
Tih Pius Muffih MPH, PH.D and the Cameroon Baptist
Convention Health Services (CBCHS) and hope for
a long collaboration and fruitful partnership.
On the 29th Nov 2008 the 4th SFA clinic the Lauren
Bayangam Health centre was officially opened.
Four members of the UNITE GROUP PLC (sponsors
of the Clinic) braved the journey, after winning
an internal competition, and travelled to Cameroon
with Stephen Komlosy (Trustee), Mrs Grace Coker
(SFA’s Vice President, Africa) and Patti (SFA
Thank goodness it is now providing basic healthcare
to the local villages.
There was no electricity or water in time for
the opening. At first the clinic was running timidly
but since then it has become more functional and
saw over 100 visitors before the Christmas celebrations.
The next day after the opening the first baby
was born in the clinic it was a boy and they named
him after Lauren.
The Lauren Bayangam health centre with services
provided by CBC Health Services, had seen a total
of 486 patients and 6 deliveries between December
2008 and end of January 2009.
