Cameroon Health & Education Fund (CHEF)

April 30th, 2012 by admin

Health care in Cameroon has made great strides, thanks in large measure to the dedicated efforts of the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services (CBCHS). Providing quality health care to all regardless of their religious beliefs, the CBCHS operates 6 hospitals at Banso, Mbingo, Mutengene, Douala, Mbem, and Banyo, , offering some of the best health care available in sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, the CBCHS operates over 70 clinics and treatment centers in six of the 10 regions of Cameroon, focusing on urgent care; pre- and post-natal services; HIV, Malaria & TB diagnosis and treatment; and a host of education and outreach programs. The CBCHS also operates the Chosen Children Program, which cares for 3,000+ orphans.

That’s where the Cameroon Health & Education Fund (CHEF) comes in. CHEF is a US non-profit organization, which channels tax-deductible gifts to improve health and education in Cameroon, mostly by supporting the CBCHS programs. As a totally volunteer organization, CHEF has no overhead or administrative costs, so 100% of every gift goes directly to Cameroon, except for credit card and wire fees. The funds are monitored and accounted for, so donors can be confident their support is serving its intended purpose.
