Prior to the campaign, a registration phase has been organised at the Sports medical center in Yaounde with consultations going on only on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12am to 5pm. And this will draw its curtains on April 4, 2022.

Various parents seeking for solution , bring in their children for  registration. It is G. Françoise’s case. The lady who got informed of the free of charge campaign just brought her son aged  3 years . Welcomed by two nurses, the registration phase begins by taking down her son’s medical parameters that is his weight , height, age and temperature. After what, the doctors make their diagnosis.

Most of the parents coming here with their children say it has been a while their children suffered from the illness but due to lack of funds, they could not continue with the medical treatment.

They also indicate being grateful to the Cameroonian footballer, André Onana for such an intiative.
