Awa Fonka Augustine, Governor of the Province of Western Cameroon
On September 27, 2016, Dr. Talla and his current team of volunteers attended a reception by Sir Awa Fonka Augustine, Governor of the Province of Western Cameroon.
Select statements by the Governor: “The current Hospital structures in the region are sufficient neither in quantity nor in quality. (…) There are sons and daughters of the Western Province being educated to (medical) specialists all over the world, and we need some of them to return back here to their home country to engage in care for the people. I encourage you to continue and stand firm in your efforts. This region, and Cameroon as a whole, and this city all count on you. (…) Do engage, continue with what you are doing. If you do it well, people from very far away will come here (to get help and treatment). These days our community deserves people like you to get their support.”
