SOUTIEN #COVID-19 CAMEROUN
The exceptional nature of the current heath situation requires our mobilisation. Let us bring our support to the most fragile populations of Cameroon: caregivers, public transport drivers, orphanage workers, street children, prisoners…, let us offer them a mask, a gel, a water source and soap for hand hygiene or simply a daily meal during this confinement period.
Let us all act to slow down the chain of contamination AND SAVE LIVES!
To fight against Covid-19, we need your support!
Faced with the emergency, our collective pre-financed the purchase of supplies for the manufacture of washable and reusable protective masks from local companies specialising in fashion and clothing.
These masks have been tested and meet the standards of the Cameroon Standards and Quality Agency. The mask will be accompanied by hydro-alcoholic gels, protective visors, multiple water sources and essential products such as soap. Distribution will be carried out on the most sensitive places and to the most exposed populations (hospitals, care units, penitentiary centres, sectors with a high concentration of precarious populations...).
Who are we?
Achille, Annick, Richard, Cyrille, Alice, Solange, Patrick, Rodrigue, Bibiane, Yvette, Franklin, Valéry, Anne, Monique, Joseph, Nelly... All volunteers!
The group SOUTIEN#COVID-19 are men and women from the Cameroon diaspora and actors from the civil society in Cameroon, who came together on the 14th of April 2020.
All our actions are done by volunteers, no personal profit will be made from the money collected and from handing out the gifts.
To realise an action of mutual aid and solidarity towards the most exposed populations and those financially disadvantaged.
To support urban and rural population by making them aware of social distancing, handing out protective equipment (Taking time to explain how to use the protective equipment) and food items of first necessity.
The sanitary situation

The SUPPORT#COVID-19 collective calls for your generosity. Sympathisers, individuals, associations or companies, let us mobilise our means and our networks to offer a response, be it modest; making it possible to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Cameroon.
