In February, Pete and Glyn will be supporting
the launch of an initiative in India.
It's a project which will be financially
independent of Spreading Health,
but is hoping to use the model which SH
and SHUMAS have developed since Spreading Health started in 2008.
We aim to work in partnership with rural communities in the
developing world who want to develop the health care in their villages.
We sponsor selected village candidates through professional health
training to help provide a lasting rural health care system.
Our current project is to sponsor nurse training to state registered
nurse level (3 years) in Cameroon, West Africa.
We are working with our established partners
and SHUMAS (a hardworking NGO in Cameroon).
Since 2008 we have sponsored 52 students. 37 are now qualified and

Every year there are increasing applications as SpreadingHealth

aspirations and see whether you would like to help us.

Quotes from our nurses: Donald says: “...patients who are very sick use motorbike
'taxis ' to get to hospital, if available. People may die when it takes

get there (hospital) so they die at home. The sisters keep pigs to help
cover the costs of treatment at our health centre.”
