Who We Help

Cameroon Trip: Summer 2010


In June and July 2010, Children’s Fund CEO Dr. Sherlie Scribner traveled to Cameroon with her son, Michael Svestka, a medical student at Eastern Virginia Medical College in Norfolk, Virginia. They visited sites where Children’s Fund has supported education in the northwestern and western regions of the country, and they visited hospitals and clinics and brought medical supplies. The videos show how the mountain village of Djottin welcomed them. They were the first Americans to visit this location, and the chief honored them with royal titles. Michael was made a “Shey” which is a nobleman, and Sherlie was made a “Bwindi” which is the highest rank ever bestowed on a foreigner.
