ORPHANS/ ABANDONED CHILDREN
ICAM is working on a Child Reach out Program targeting orphans and vulnerable children and their families in more than 20 communities around the country.
This program includes the distribution of food items, clothing, and gifts to orphanages, health centres, centres for handicapped children, and centres for the blind.
ICAM’s upcoming Family Home Project will provide shelter, food, clothing and love to over 500 orphans and vulnerable children in all the ten Regions of Cameroon. This project will be enhanced by simultaneous educational and youth mentoring program.
There is only 1 doctor/10,000 people in most parts of Africa. The poor rarely can afford medical care.
Hospital workers, barely or rarely paid, live by extorting money from dying patients.
Health campaigns & education include a large part of improving health by teaching. Almost every home has one mosquito net. What about the people sleeping on the couch? Many men still consider a condom an affront to their masculinity
ICAM Medical Mission Project will provide health care services to ensure a healthy lifestyle for individuals and communities in our catchment area.
