PROJECTS AND NEEDS
The “Our Lady of the Angels
Center” actually has many projects at stand-by due to lack
This project intends to put at
the disposal of youths of productive age hard carton
leaflets carrying guidelines on natural contraception based
on the knowledge of the menstrual cycle. These leaflets will
have as principal aim to teach them among others to avoid:
Clandestine and sometimes fatal
Infanticides which are common in
areas where people fight daily for survival,
Babies abandoned in dustbins and
We also teach them to:
Know and better follow up their
Detect abnormalities and
irregularities for the gynecologists to better take
Avoid chemical contraceptives which
sometimes cause obesity and cardio vascular diseases,
Know at which period of the
menstrual period they may conceive or not.
In fact, the natural family
planning (NFP) is the divine method because God has made
that all his creatures have fertile and unfertile
period. This method must be protected and encouraged by
all those who know it and claim themselves sons of God.
The disinfestations of wells.
This project aims to putting
chlorine into wells in the neighborhood which are not
connected to potable water distribution network. In effect,
we have noticed that in Douala and particularly in the
neighborhood which are not connected to the potable
distribution network, that the population drink and utilize
water from rudimentary wells whose depth is less than two
meters. Since the land is sandy and these wells are so
closed to latrines in an environment where we are sometimes
found at less than one meter above the sea level, fecal
pollution thus exposes these populations to diseases such as
typhoid fever, amoebic or bacillus dysentery; parasites;
skin and intestinal mycosis.
The detection of cardio vascular diseases and diabetes.
According to Cameroonian
cardiologists, 25% of the urban population is suffering of
arterial hypertension and in the years to come majority of
Cameroonians will live in urban areas. Hence, the detection
and prevention campaign for these diseases becomes an urgent
necessity. Therefore, the “Our Lady of the Angels Center”
envisages organizing campaigns to detect these diseases
which affect more and more vulnerable people and victims of
The detection of AIDS and the distribution of ARV to
The State and NGOs are making
important efforts on the field in order to ameliorate the
health of people living with AIDS, but there are still some
people living without a knowledge of their serological
status and because of that, door to door detection will
better ameliorate the work on the field.
Impregnation of mosquito nets
The project aims at impregnating
mosquito nets of people who live in marshy areas and are
often exposed to mosquito which are the main vectors of
malaria in the world.
The showing of documentary films on hygiene and sanitation.
The showing of documentary films
in less favored areas will have as aim to sensitize the
population on the elementary hygiene rules which are the
cornerstones for fight against tropical diseases. In
nowadays, we do not need scientific proofs to demonstrate
that malaria has disappeared in Europe because Europeans
have improved on their environment.
The detection of cataract.
The cataract is one of the eyes
diseases which affect elderly persons in Cameroon. As the
number of ophthalmologists is insufficient, people suffering
of cataract are obliged to move to the urban area where they
are. So, this project aims to organize in time to time
campaigns to detect cataract and other eye diseases with
