Gearing up to Open the Doors to the HOPE Centre

HOPE Centre in Douala

As the Africa Mercy Sails to Douala, Cameroon the Advance Team is on the ground working  hard to train day workers and prepare our land based facilities, such as the Hospital Out Patient Extension (HOPE) Centre, for the ship’s arrival.

Are you curious where the HOPE Centre will be in Douala? Below are the site maps to where you can see the location of the HOPE Centre, Dental Clinic, Eye Clinic, Biomedical Clinic, Obstetric Fistula Clinic, and Ponseti clinic (located next to the HOPE Centre).

The HOPE Centre Manager, Martha Rodriguez, who is already in country, welcoming and training her HOPE Centre facilitators and day crew commented that the building after the major renovations is “beautiful”.

This amazing renovation has been made possible because of you. The HOPE Centre in Cameroon is 100% funded by Canadian donors. You are providing patients and their families a place to rest, recover and heal from life changing surgery. This is an essential component to what we do.

Here is a sneak peek at some of the before and after photographs of the HOPE Centre, which will soon be filled with beds, supplies, patients and their family members.

The Africa Mercy Welcomes First Patients on Board

Two years ago, when the Africa Mercy sailed from Senegal, hundreds of patients were left still waiting for their chance for surgery.

On February 1st, the ship returned to the port of Dakar to bring hope and healing to these patients and their families.
