Doctors Without Borders and COMINSUD partnering for humanity

A delegation from Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontiers) working in the North West Region of Cameroon paid a courtesy visit to the Bamenda head office of COMINSUD on Wednesday 11, April 2019 to this effect. The team of three made up of Monica Fernadez, Deep W. B and Tataw Stephen came to seek pathways for collaboration with COMINSUD in helping people affected by the crisis in the Anglophone Regions of Cameroon in general and the North West Region in particular.

MSF has been in the Region since the end of 2018 offering emergency health assistance to victims of the crisis following a near collapse of the health sector in all seven Divisions of the North West Region. According to the MSF staff their choice of COMINSUD was based on their track record in offering humanitarian assistance to the needy even during normal times.
COMINSUD’s coordinator, Fon Nsoh presented a succinct overview of the activities of the organization since it was founded in 1996 and expressed satisfaction for the interest shown by MSF in its activities.

Following discussions that followed both organizations agreed to forester cooperation in areas including emergency medical assistance, fight against Gender Based Violence especially sexual abuse, mental health, providing Psychological First Aid (PFA) to persons in distress and education on health promotion.
