Ngwai Odilia who was present when the incident occurred in Nkambe narrates that 125 victims were rushed to the Nkambe Regional Hospital Annex. WICUDA on the auspices of Forgwa Rogers contributed money to feed the victims and caregivers till when they left Hospital.

WICUDA Bamenda also ensured that the most severe cases that were referred to Bamenda did not lack anything.

The victims have spent two months at the Bamenda Regional Hospital and all of them are stable and of the five victims at the Regional hospital, one has been discharged and the rest will be discharged progressively.

Dr Nsame Denis stated that three of the five had their limbs amputated and this will go a long way to ensuring that they fully recover.

"They will be going home soon and the rehabilitation process will commence from there. To note that since they started receiving treatment, it has been free of charge."

The Director used the visit to express thanks to all the other persons who have visited the hospital to encourage the kids.
