Our Main Project: The CMCS
Our main project is the organisation and construction of the CMCS (Centre medico-chirurgical spécialisé de Bafoussam / Specialized Centre of Medicine and Surgery Bafoussam).
This Hospital Centre, currently still under construction, is placed in the 400’000 inhabitant city of Bafoussam – third largest city of the country and capital of Cameroon’s West Province. It will include, once completed, unprecedented advancements of general and public health in the Western Cameroonian Province. Thanks to a motivated crew of highly trained specialists of volunteers from Europe who regularly join in for two-week stages, the quality of our medical care is constantly maintained and improved by implementing state-of-the-art-methods of diagnosing and treating knowledge. As a First for Cameroon, CMCS has equipped itself with laparoscopic technology which makes it the first centre for laparoscopic surgery in the country, and as a First for the area it will be equipped with a CT Scanner. We also started to provide the first out of hospital emergency service in the Province of West Cameroon with the help of three donated ambulances. The hospital currently holds 25 hospital beds and has opened its doors in Juli 2014. Until 2018, plans are to establish a comprehensive permanent team of doctors and other fully trained medical personnel.
The medical disciplines currently established and planned at CMCS:
- General Medicine
- Internal Medicine
- Oncological Gynaecology
- Orthopaedy / Traumatology
- Emergency Room
- Mobile Ambulances
- Biomedical Laboratory
Since both Pascal and Pélagie had the chance to receive and to continuously update excellent medical training, they gratefully wish to share their knowledge with local medical professionals and are constantly motivating volunteers from Europe to join in and do the same. One of their dreams in this context is to find an investor who shares the humanitarian mindset of ASPSC and is willing to support regular periodic medical and paramedical seminars and practical training for medical personnel in the region.
We continuously support the nearby Orphanage in Bafoussam with donated clothing, toys, furniture, and bed clothing. If you would like to donate any of these essentials please contact us.
