A pygmy settlement in Yen near Djoum (2001)

In this remote settlement, we found few families living in huts. children were malnurished and bearing intestinal parasites. A young 15 year old girl was almost dying of malaria.
We provided the families with strong advices about hygiene both individual and collective.
We gave all the children antiparasitic drugs for systematic deworming, as well as antimalaric drugs for the young girl and the whole family. Few weeks later the girl was fine and could do her daily falily farming activities.


Denis and I with a Pygmy family in Yen near Djoum (2001)


In this house, we found a pregnant woman with malaria and her two malnurished children.
Children were systematically dewormed and the woman treated for malaria, anaemia and worms.

Few weeks later, The woman had delivered inside the house as usual and the baby was fine though, wrapped inside old clothes and fed with what was left in her mother's breast. we gave them clothes and a bottle of milk for a few days... all we could do then


Pygmy children in Mebane Near Djoum (2002)

Children in all villages we visit are alwys systematically deworwed as interstinal polyparasitism is very common and responsible of malnurishment, asthenia loss of attention in school, and sometimes major trouble like gut occlusions in case of massive invasion by adult worms (Ascaris lumbico´des). with little we can have very good results. But Hygiene remains a major challenge.
