Paru le mardi, 27 octobre 2020 16:07

On October 26, 2020, the Minister of Public Health (MINSANTE) Malachie Manaouda published a release detailing several actions aimed at treating the people affected by the Kumba shooting.

On October 24, 2020, a group of armed men (presumed to be separatists) stormed a school in Kumba, a region in Southwestern Cameroon, killing 6 children and wounding 13.

Among the actions announced by the MINSANTE is the creation of counseling and psychological assistance unit for victims’ families and friends. For this purpose, a toll-free number (1511) has been created and housed at the Red Cross.

These actions also include sending a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists and psychologists to the families for appropriate care and psychological assistance. All the victims and their families will also receive free curative and post-mortem care.
