Cameroon: North West - CBC Health Services Inaugurates Cancer Care Home

Mbingo Baptist hospital-based Cancer care home will harbor parents whose children are undergoing treatment

It is on record that most children suffering from cancer end up dying because their parents were unable to cover the cost of transportation to hospital since treatment sometimes, last for about six months. That is perhaps, why quite often, some children do not complete their treatment. It is against this backdrop that the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Board (CBCHB) with the support of the World Cancer Care has constructed and inaugurated a home to habour parents and guardians with children suffering from cancer for as long as the treatment lasts. The twelve room building planted at the Mbingo Baptist Hospital, Boyo Division is well equipped and suitable for the purpose. While inaugurating the home recently, a Senior Staff f the CBCHB, Ndosak George said the organization mobilized a lot of financial, material and human resources to give hope to children suffering from Cancer. He appreciated CBCHB partners because the home will go a long way to give comfort to children suffering from cancer. Meanwhile, the Director of the CBC Child care Cancer progrmme, Prof. Peter Hesseling said children cancer is curable and about 80 percent of children with cancer get cured. He revealed that CBC child Care Cancer Centre in the Banso Baptist hospital (BBH) has been able to treat many children suffering from Cancer. He was also glad because the Mbingo Cancer Care home is around to enable most of their patients' complete treatment as their parents and guardians will always be available.
