The Bishop of Mamfe Diocese inaugurates an ultramodern hospital in Mmuock Leteh – Wabane subdivision, in Lebialem Division of the South West Region.
The population of Mmuock Leteh and its environs can now breathe a sigh of relief following the construction of the Divine Mercy Catholic hospital at Ntemndzem, an imposing ultramodern structure with state-of-the-art medical equipment funded by the Catholic Church.
The project of general interest aims to ease equal access to quality and affordable healthcare services right at their doorsteps.
While inaugurating the hospital over the weekend, the Bishop of the Mamfe Diocese, Rt. Rev. Dr Aloysius FONDONG ABANGALO, in the presence of HRH Chief Fotang VI of Mmuock Leteh and a host of dignitaries, also announced the imminent construction of two additional classrooms at Catholic School Leteh to enable pupils study under a conducive environment.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Fotang VI expressed immense gratitude to the Bishop for the countless development projects the Catholic Church has carried out over the years; especially in the domains of education and health. He assured them of his constant and consistent support.
Thanks to the hospital, the population of Mmuock Leteh and its environs, estimated at over 18 000 people, will no longer have to travel long distances to seek medical attention in hospitals in and around Bafoussam, Bamenda, and other towns.
Located on the northwestern border with the West Region, some 24 km from Dschang, Mmuock Leteh is a cosmopolitan village in Wabane subdivision of Lebialem Division.
It is one of the country’s producers of Irish potato, carrots and other market crops sold nationwide and within the CEMAC Sub-region.
Professor OJUKU TIAFACK, a notable of Mmuock Leteh, seized the occasion to plead on the government to help construct and rehabilitate the poor road infrastructure to ease the circulation of persons and goods.
The occasion was marked by a special mass session to pray for peace, and traditional dances staged by cultural groups.
The people of Mmuock Leteh, through their traditional ruler Fotang VI, reaffirmed their commitment to work with the government, civil society, and private actors to promote peace and participatory development for the welfare of the entire population.
