One of Cameroon’s citizens’ friendly companies, Pari Mutuel Urbain Camerounais, PMUC, has donated medical equipment to the Bafoussam Regional Hospital, worth FCFA 8 million.

The donation comprising of 11 hospital beds, 11 orthopaedic mattresses, 10 stainless wall screens consisting of 2 panels of 1.70m each, 3000 EDTA tubes, 2000 dry tubes, 650 blood bags, 20 electronic tension meters, 5 blood grouping reagents and 2 dosimetersamong others.

The handing over ceremony was presided at by the West Regional Governor, Augustine Awa Fonka, in the presence of Tatyana Eldin Mabouka, Deputy Director General of PMUC, who led a powerful delegation of PMUC staff.

According to the DeputyDirector General, the gesture was in line with the citizen-engagement the company took while launching its business, 23 years ago to strengthen technical facilities of several reference hospitals in the country.

She said the health caravan of PMUC began last year in Ebolowa and moved to Bamenda, Maroua, Garoua and recently to Kousseri. At each stop, she went on;the company donatesmedications and medical equipment to the hospital of the area.
She called on the hospital authorities to make judicious use of the materials.

“PMUC’s greatest wish is to ensure that the medical equipment will substantially improve healthcare services in the hospitals and that healthcare services would be taken closer to the population and spare them of the stress of covering long distances just to be treated of their illnesses.”

Tatyana Eldin Mabouka further asserted that the equipment was in response to the needs expressed jointly by the Regional Delegate of Public Health and the Director of the Bafoussam Regional Hospital.

Speaking at the occasion, an elated Director of the Bafoussam Regional Hospital, Gerard Fetse Tama, said the donation is timely. ‘With this gesture, PMUC is contributing to the development of this hospital, which is in dire need of renovation. This hospital receives more than 4000 new patients every month with every one of them requiring quality medical services,” Fetse said.

He added that within the context of modernisation of the technical facilities of the hospital, they have decided to proceed with the replacement of all the old beds because “as you can see, the hospital does not deserve the kind of beds it has and since last year, the hospital has embarked on its reform to acquire more than 70 new beds and today the PMUC is offering us beds to ameliorate our services, we can’t thank them enough,” the hospital Directed said.

The Governor of the West Region and the President of the Management Committee of the hospital all thanked PMUC for the gesture and called on individuals, companies and other organisations to contribute in their small way in ameliorating the condition of the hospital in general and patients in particular.

The donation, according to PMUC’s information kit, is the largest offered so far and it will prevent patients in theWest Region from travelling over long distances to Yaoundé and Douala just to seek medicalhealthcare services.

“By this gesture, PMUC is determined to continue its reach out policy towards the Cameroonian society, given the hearty welcome Cameroonians havegivento the company since the launched of its activities in 1994,”partly read the message.
