CBCHS Central Administration Dedicates New Building, Service Vehicles

The CBC Health Services Central Administration has dedicated a new imposing edifice to host the Empowerment and Disability Inclusive Development (EDID) programme, Socio-Economic Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (SEEPD) programme and the Director of Health Services’ (DHS) Office. Some three service vehicles mainly for the HIV Free project to be used in the Littoral and Centre regions and a bus for Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services (CBCHS) visitors were also dedicated. The dedication on June 8, 2015 was conducted by the Executive President of the CBC, Rev. Godwill Ncham in the presence of CBC leaders who were attending board meetings at the Baptist Headquarters in Nkwen, Bamenda.
Speaking during the event, the CBC Director of Health Services (DHS), Prof. Tih Pius Muffih said all good gifts come from God and therefore He (God) needs to be acknowledged for His goodness. The DHS beseeched the occupants of the building to deliver acceptable services to all who need them. He stated that the main funding for the building came from the Liliane Foundation in The Netherlands, Christofell Blinden Mission (CBM) in Germany and the President Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in the US. Talking about the accessibility of the one-storey building to persons with disabilities, Prof. Tih said a lift was going to be installed in two weeks from the date of the dedication. He went further to explain that a ram would have blocked the beauty of the building due to lack of space.
The service vehicles, Prof. Tih reiterated, were principally donated by PEPFAR through the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) Atlanta. Quizzed on the expediency of the vehicles, the DHS said they will be used mainly in the Centre and Littoral regions to reach out to the peripheries and take care of people living with HIV and AIDS or pregnant women. He said the four-wheel drive vehicles can go to almost everywhere in the hinterlands to serve the people. The bus which he described as ‘comfortable’ will be used for transporting CBCHS visitors to and fro the airports. Appreciating the building, the EDID and SEEPD Programme Managers, Mrs. Agho Glory and Mr. Awa Jacque Chirac respectively, said they were happy because the new building has provided enough office space to host their services. The new building they said will solve the space challenge and lead to increased productivity given that accommodation is key to staff performance.
