Recently, HINT celebrated a great success having screened 215 individuals for diabetes and hypertension! Volunteer extraordinaire, Sabrina Repa, coordinated the 2 day event, which included a blood pressure and blood sugar level check, health consultation, and 2 educational seminars. Results of the screenings showed that an incredible 25% of the people demonstrated signs of hypertension. We are thankful for our volunteer nurse, Christi, for providing immediate consult to these people. The health outreach was conducted in Tole, a small village just outside of Buea where many farmers of the Tole Tea Plantation reside. With very limited access to healthcare and health information, we are grateful for Sabrina and for the many donors who allowed us to bring blood pressure machines and blood sugar tester and test strips to the people of Tole!
