Lilly NGO Employee Awards (2014)

In 2014 we were one of the organizations recognized at Lilly´s 5th NGO Employee Awards. The prize money, amounting to 5,000 euros, was earmarked for the donation of a blood bank at Centre Médicalisé Catholique Saint Dominique de Djunang, Cameroon. This rural hospital in western Cameroon has been collaborating with Fundación Recover since 2009, when it was practically abandoned.

The creation of a blood bank guarantees the safety of transfusions, which are often necessary in cases of surgery, childbirth complications, or severe anemia caused by malaria.
