CBCHS Director and Fundong Mayor after MOU signing
"I would like to thank the SEEPD program for renewing their confidence in the Fundong council. I will like you to know that we merely renewed our commitment to work with the CBC Health Board. In fact before the crisis set in we had practically removed all mental cases from our streets. We set up volunteers to work with the communities. We were about setting up inclusive education in our central primary schools but for the crisis. We did identify people living with disabilities in higher institutions of learning and we are assisting them. So it is not a matter of trying the program out, it is a matter of improving on what we did before." Denis Awo Ndang Mayor Fundong Council reacted after the MoU.
Speaking during the opening of the workshop on Wednesday June 12, the Regional Delegate of Decentralisation and Local Development for the North West Region Dr Essomo Sylvie expressed satisfaction with the work being done by the CBC Health Services and partners in promoting Inclusive development at all levels in Cameroon.
