Senator Ngam Allocates 3M Cfa F To Fight Coronavirus In Boyo
In a bid to assuage the sufferings of poor and almost outstretched populations of Cameroon's Boyo Division of the North West Region that has seen many lives shattered as a result of the four years prolonged Anglophone conflict, now compounded by the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, young humanist and open-hearted Senator Honore Ajuo Ngam, has stepped in to provide the much needed emergency assistance capable of barring the way for the pandemic not to enter Boyo Division.
The initiative known as "Boyo-free Coronavirus Plan" makes available the sum of 3 million CFA F to assist local authorities and the population in general, in their struggles to ward off the ravaging infection.
Out of the financial package allocated, one million CFA F will be donated to the four Councils of Boyo to boost their efforts in the fight against the deadly pandemic. It should be recalled that following a joint press release issued on April 20, by the ministers of Public Health and of Decentralization and Local Development, Councils shall henceforth be responsible for the management and follow up of all comfirmed Coronavirus cases in their communities.
The Plan also earmarks the sum of 1.5 million CFA F to be for used for the production and distribution of over 1000 face masks across the Division, alongside sensitization materials and laundry soap to encourage hand-washing in the communities. The rest of the money will be used to mobilize and facilitate the work of community youth volunteers who are expected to carry the awareness campaign messages to every doorstep in the four municipalities of the Division.
To ease the assimilation of the messages, the Plan earmarks the translation of sensitization gadgets into the different local languages spoken across the Division.
Aside this financial package destined for his native Division, Senator Honore Ajuo Ngam, has equally donated 500,000 CFA F through the Senate to the Special Solidarity Fund initiated on March 31, by President Biya.
