HOW TO SUPPORT THE HEART FOUNDATION
Become or help find motivated members and donors
Help canvass publicity opportunities
Help develop more effective fundraising strategies
We are heartily proud of our collaborators:
Etica Mundi (Italy): Dr. Claudia Von Lettoretti and Dr. Andrea Zeller in Bozen work extra hard to gather reliable donors to sponsor the heart surgery for the underprivileged patients in Shisong. Even though their collaboration with the Tertiary Sisters goes beyond the Cardiac Center, their donation program, mi-do, is uniquely in favour of the cardiac patients.
English Speaking Catholic Parish of Zurich (Switzerland). This collaboration was started around 2004 through the Cameroonians who belonged in the Parish in Zurich, which became a Parish project. Worth mentioning are Dr. Eric Ayuni and Fengai Morin Mbuy. Parishioners helped in equipping the Cardiac Center and continue to donate for the underprivileged cardiac patients.
Franciscan Mission Outreach (USA) :
Lanmso Choirs Association, Yaoundé: This is an Association of Choirs from the Catholic and Baptist Churches in Yaoundé that promote Church music in the Nso language. They contribute individually and solicit funds to support the treatment of underprivileged cardiac patients. They pay annual visits to the Cardiac Center and Shisong orphanage to pray with, visit the sick and make their donation.
Individuals like the Fondufe Family, Excellency Fai Yengo Francis, are highly commended.
It is with your help that we are encouraged to strive to ensure that no cardiac patient who comes to Shisong is left unattended on the bases of his economic situation.
Why Assist Cardiac Patients?
The cost of cardiac operation is relatively high: 4 million FCFA for Cameroonians whose per capita income stands at 517,500.
An estimate of 80,000 persons live with heart problems in Cameroon, increased by 5000 yearly.
An average of 200 persons on our list of those awaiting surgery.
Many who were operated and need regular control do not always have the means to financial resources to respect the appointments.
