A brand new vehicle has been offered as grant to the CUIB Sr. Emmanuella Fomenky Memorial Foundation Clinic. This grant from MIVA comes at a time when health care service to underprivileged communities is a concern to the Catholic University Institute of Buea. According to Rev. Fr. George Nkeze President of CUIB, the purpose of this vehicle is to reach out to the sick of the underprivileged community as well as hasten the transfer of patients from the CUIB clinic to referenced hospitals when the need arise. After blessing the vehicle, his Lordship Immanuel Balanjo Bushu Chancellor of CUIB, thanked the donor organization MIVA for the kind gesture and lauded the management of CUIB for this pleasing achievement. President George while presenting the grant to the university community praised the efforts made by the Vice President for Personnel Management and Institutional Advancement and Development Sr. Mary Kombe in achieving this grant for the University.

According to Sr. Mary Kombe, late Sr. Emannuela Fomenky was a kind and loveable person who served the community selflessly during her days on earth. This explains why she dedicates herself to the success of the clinic in memory of the late Sr. Emmanuella as a sign of homage.

The late Sr. Emmanuella Fomenky was sister of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Therese of the Child Jesus in Kumba and pioneer worker with the Catholic University Institute of Buea where she served the institution with passion. The clinic in memory of her was created to provide better health care services to the community and especially the underprivileged and economically challenged patients.
