In February 2008, Rachelle Lynn Clune and Elizabeth Rhea Embry, both nurses in the United States of America (USA), will visit Helps International (HINT), an NGO located in Buea, South West Province of Cameroon in Sub-Sahara Africa.
During their time here, they will take part in a medical outreach program planned to take place in 2 rural communities: Ekona and Tole.
The outreaches are intended to:
- Sensitize these communities on the HIV/AIDS pandemic
- Train HIV Educators in these communities
- Educate the public (esp. youths) on sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
- Train community members on various aspects of basic hygiene.
- Offer free consultations and free medication.
Rachelle & Beth need US$ 3,425.97 (excluding their flights to Cameroon and back) to be able to reach these rural villages with this life-saving information, training and resources.
