Free German courses for the employees and trainees of Assitance Germano-Camerounaise. While pantomiming works to a certain extent, being able to speak with one another makes communication easier. And nicer.
Ms. Marie Noelle Etoungou is a German teacher at a school in Yaoundé, and comes 2x each week (Mondays and Friday from 4-6 p.m.) to the office of our partner organization in order to make
At the start of the new year, we want to send another aid transport to Cameroon! Two shipping containers, donated by the firm Heinrich Klumpen & Sons from Nettetal, are waiting on Weber Metalworking's premises in Aachen, ready to be filled with donations. We will again be permitted to store them in Medicor's hangar until they are ready to ship. An enormous thank you to all of these companies for their support.
The new medical center should be supplied with medical equipment and materials
Alphonse Yombi (center) visiting Ursula and Reinhard Klumpen in Breyell: The former soccer player used to live in Lobberich, which is how he got to know the family with whom he is discussing his projects in Cameroon.
And so Norbert Weber, after only 8 weeks in Germany, is going back to the training center in Cameroon. He has too many ideas and thoughts in his head that he can't rest until he implements them. And so, without further ado, he is flying back to Yaoundé with 50 kg (110 lbs) of extra luggage: Albert is bringing along spools of cable, building fittings, jigsaws, cordless screwdrivers, screws, wires, clamps, sheet metal, and profiles in order to finish what he was unable to accomplish during his first

The team in the metal workshop is pleased because they have found a way to use small exhibition pieces that the trainers prepare with their students to hang along the walls of the training center.
Congratulations to the “untamable lions” (the national team of Cameroon), who won the Africa Cup 2017 last night. This is their fifth victory in this championship (most recentl win was in 2002).
In the Libreville (Gabon) final, the Lions beat the Egyptian Pharaohs 2:1. “I've been a trainer for 29 years, and I have never had a team like this one. This is a team of 23 friends,” said Cameroon's trainer, Hugo Broos.

The employees in the metal workshop continue to be highly motivated after the visit from Norbert Weber. Under the direction of workshop manager Noah, they created several railings and placed them around the training center building as exhibition pieces.

“No one home?” – “Then we'll throw it into the street…” What a surprise on an empty stomach for Alphonse Yombi when he comes back from picking up bread.
We are excited! We thank Mrs. Heidrun Lutz and the company Medicor who let us have their Volkswagen bus. The bright flag, which was attached by the agency Deutmann, makes the bus eye candy. In a few weeks, it will be in Cameroon and provide mobility on site. We have many things to transport, errands to run and sometimes students to drive. Look forward to more pictures of the bus in action.
