REPORT ON THE CELEBRATION OF THE 2018
INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH
DISABILITIES IN NSEH NKUM SUB DIVISION
After considering our activities with persons with disabilities in the North West and South West Regions of
Cameroon and the theme for the celebrations of this year’s international day of persons with disabilities “Empowering Persons with Disabilities and Ensuring Inclusiveness and
Equality”, we decided to celebrate this event with a difference. Announcements were passed in churches requesting free registration of articles produced by persons with disabilities to showcase their talents. This exercise saw the registration of over 40 participants both children
and adults registering with farm products like maize, beans, cabbage and some bamboo works like bamboo chairs, bee hives and basket.

A REPORT ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF MEDICATIONS
TO EPILEPTIC PATIENTS IN THREE HEALTH
CENTERS IN BAFUT 25/08/2018
Phenobarbital 100mg is one of the tablets taken by epileptic patients on daily basis for sustenance. Based on doctors recommendations some patients are recommended to take two in the morning and two in the evening while others are only given one tablet daily. Today the Agape Unity Program provided and opportunity for over 35 epileptic patients in three health centers in the Bafut Sub division to receive medications that can carry over for three months. We conceived this activity this time around to ensure that these patients who depend on daily medications can be able to have their treatment throughout the three months of uncertainty within the crisis in the North West Region and the pre and post-elections period.
