Our annual campaign, Partnerships For Peace, focuses on health and education in a region suffering from political unrest. This fundraising initiative directly combats the negative effects of the conflict through our total health and children’s education initiatives. Our programs are oftentimes the only resources communities have access to in order to supplement the loss of schools and hospitals across the region. Every day, our staff in Cameroon is hard at work forging partnerships with local women’s groups, children’s organizations, and communities to cast a wider safety net of outreach to as many people as possible.
A Closer Look At The Total Health Program:
This week, we are highlighting the many facets of our Total Health Program at Himalayan Institute Cameroon. Our Total Health Program has been a core part of our operations in Cameroon since the inception of our initiatives in 2007. Our physical health centers, along with our mobile health units, are able to provide essential health services to thousands of people every year. Our program focuses on public health education through group seminars and private one-on-one consultations for common local illnesses.
Most recently, we have made a concerted effort to focus on addressing the mental health struggles that come with the trauma of living in a conflict zone. Through breathing and meditation practices, we have been able to give people the tools they need to manage stress and anxiety, and create peace within themselves, their families, and their communities.
How This Relates To Our Campaign:
Health services, breathing, and meditation are key components for sustaining lasting peace in communities not only in Cameroon but all around the world. These are essential tools for building and maintaining peace and will help thousands of people in a constant state of conflict find stillness within and project that sense of calm outward. Our independent health consultants have the training and mobility to travel to villages and cities all around the Northwest Region of Cameroon, making these services available and easy to access for all. Personal health and wellbeing are essential pillars of a peaceful and healthy society, and our total health programs are helping to build this every single day.
How Will This Campaign Help?
Partnerships for Peace mitigates the stress and turmoil people are experiencing every day. Through breathing and mindfulness techniques, women, men, and children are receiving the tools to help them cope and create peace of mind during this volatile time in their lives. Through our collective efforts, which could not continue without donor support, we remain on the ground daily sharing children’s literacy programs, public health education, and meditation practices.
We ask you for a donation to support this initiative as well as our overall goal of bringing peace to the world, especially those who need our help the most.
These resources create a lasting impact on the communities we serve. With ongoing support, our outreach will continue to expand throughout all of Cameroon. Please donate NOW to support our social impact, as we continue to support Cameroon into a brighter tomorrow. Creating change is a long-term investment. Your support creates impact that will continue to develop for many generations to come.
We are changing the world.
