BRIEF INQUIRY OF THE PROMOTER
The promoter is a retired nurse who has done nursing as a profession for more than 30 years. He is also a farmer, married and a father of 04 children. He is presently the promoter of FELP.
ADMINISTRATIVE SET UP
FELP is made up of the promoter who doubles as the director, an assistant director MR. CHARLES ATABONG, a coordinator MR. ARRY TANJAH WILLIAMS and a nursing aid worker.
The Partner Organization PERSPECTIVES KAMERUN e.V. assists in the Project of assisting the Elderly and Less Privileged in the community. Supporting the distribution of walking and support equipments. The promoter is renting a 2 rooms structure with a toilet and a bathroom. It has an office, observation unit with two beds, minor surgery section.

The promoter provides the finance for the functioning of this foundation from his income as a retired nurse and a farmer sometimes supported by family members and friends.
SANITATION AND HEALTH
The environment is clean, quiet and airy. It is not close to the highway and so keeping the elderly persons out of danger.
PROBLEMS FACED AND HOW YOU CAN HELP US
Lacks enough finance to handle serious elderly cases. Lacks finance to feed elderly persons with medical problems that need to be taken care of. Limited funds to pay for the rented apartment. The staffing situation is low because the promoter does virtually everything alone and lacks money to pay salaries of more than 4 staff. We are calling on you to assist us both financial, Medications and equiptments. Contact us or Perspectives Kamerun e.V. directly. The contact information can be seen on this website.
ANALYSIS AND CONCLUSION
FELP is not only a big support to the elderly persons but also to the less privileged. He provides both medical and psychological support to such group of persons especially within Likomba that has no health unit. A private sponsored initiative like this, meant to give a helping hand to the government in the health domain and also to protect the rights of the elderly persons should be encouraged. It is in this light that I strongly recommend that the foundation for the elderly and the less privileged (FELP) should be given and authorization to operate officially.
