LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Earlier this month, we introduced to you to a team of folks who save lives here on the South Plains each day, but it's their mission work saving lives in Cameroon that made them Red Cross heroes this year.
Volunteers with Purpose Medical Mission gathered Saturday afternoon to talk about their next mission to the African country. The medical mission's purpose is to improve health care and the quality of life in rural southwest Cameroon. In 2011 they want to reach kids, and those who are HIV positive.
Sixtus Atabong, founder of Purpose Medical Mission, says "It is to build a pediatric ward and help state hospital with supplies."
Money to buy a Nissan Cube was donated Thursday, which the group will raffle off in March. Proceeds will go to the 2011 mission's goals. Tickets are 20 dollars.
