MyDoctorCameroon founder and CEO Charles Agbor has found that sending money home to Cameroon for healthcare simply does not work, because he seldom can get accurate information about his family’s health. His mother is blind from a treatable condition, even though he sent money for medical expenses. In 1998, his father died unexpectedly; Charles didn’t know his father had health problems, and still doesn’t know the cause of death.
Similar heartbreaking stories exist among many members of the Cameroonian diaspora and their families. MyDoctorCameroon is designed to solve that problem by providing consistent, on-going care to family members in Cameroon.
