As part of her efforts to commemorate International Epilepsy Day 2022, EAAF Cameroon has embarked on series of sensitisation campaigns. These campaigns which target Health facilities, schools and Churches ran from Ferbuary 7 – 14, 2022.
As part of the activities to raise awareness of epilepsy in celebration of the International Epilepsy Day, they gave a health talk on one of the most popular community radio stations in the North West region of Cameroon.
Speaking to an audience of over 1000 during the live and interactive show, the volunteers demystified epilepsy, encouraged early diagnosis and treatment, debunked myths, discouraged epilepsy stigma and advocated for social inclusion of people living with epilepsy. They also answered questions about epilepsy from the listeners.
On February 12, 2022, volunteers of EAAF joined the staff of a reference hospital in the North West Region of Cameroon for a health walk to raise awareness and contribute their own quota of the 50 million steps. A total of 32,000 steps were taken.
EAAF Cameroon also visited some key secondary schools and churches where they sensitized and educated over 6000 persons, and trained them on First aid for seizures.
