Cameroonians Clean Ridge Hospital

By Daily Guide

MEMBERS OF the Cameroonian Community in Ghana (CCG) last Saturday embarked on a four-hour clean-up exercise at the Ridge Hospital in Accra.

The exercise formed part of the group's social responsibility to the Ghanaian society.

Josue Mouiche, president of CCG, in an interview, said the Cameroonian community undertook the exercise to express their commitment and loyalty to Ghanaians for their hospitality.

“This exercise is also meant to help tidy up the health facility as our contribution towards health protection in Ghana.”

He pledged the group's readiness to continue to help make the country clean and tidy at all times.

He used the occasion to appeal to all Cameroonian nationals who have not yet joined the association to do so to move it forward, indicating, “The association is located near Club 10 Restaurant at Kanda in Accra”.

He said Ghanaians willing to join the group would be entitled to all privileges enjoyed by active members and even be elevated to the position of patrons based on their contribution to the association.

An officer of the Department of Social Welfare at the Ridge Hospital who only gave her name as Matilda, as well as other workers of the hospital, commended the association for the clean-up exercise and encouraged other non-Ghanaian nationals resident in the country to emulate their example.

Over 300 Cameroonians live in Accra alone.

The association, founded in 1983 has been very active in keeping Cameroonian nationals in Ghana together.

The only major problem facing them, however, is the inconvenience of having to travel to La Cote D' Ivoire to either renew or acquire new travel documents.
