Republic of Cote dlvoire

IYF Medical Assistance

Since the 2011 World Camp, Good News Medical Volunteers have visited Cote d'Ivoire and treated *Buruli ulcer patients. Each year, volunteers make progress in curing the disease by the help of local medical staff.

*Buruli ulcer is a disease borne by water creatures, but is not contagious. When creatures like water bugs bite, the skin decays and organs fail. Most of the time, infected limbs are amputated. About 10 % of the people in the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire suffer from the Buruli ulcer (Nearly 41 % of African Buruli ulcer patients are in Cote d'Ivoire).
Mind Lectures provide the opportunity to observe the world of the heart, which has been ignored in today's busy and competitive society, and discover the true purpose and value of life and happiness.
IYF activities in Cote d'Ivoire were introduced to the presidential advisory body for youth. Schemes of cooperation on how to treat Buruli ulcer were also discussed with the Minister of Health & Welfare.
