A Kind Gesture to the CDC Affected Workers and Families

The representative of the General Manager, the Attaché N°1 to GM, together with some of his collaborators and the representatives of MAYA, were at the SS-Club Tiko, on Tuesday 5th November 2013, to hand in the sum of 2,000,000 (two million) FCFA  given to them by MAYA in support to the 20 CDC bereaved families.


The ceremony started at exactly 2.40pm with a word of prayer led by Pastor Lambe, one of the bereaved family members.  Thereafter, were words of encouragements from the Group Rubber Manager, the Director of Human Resources and the General Manager’s representative – A1 to GM. They all welcomed the bereaved families on behalf of the entire CDC workforce. Management told them that no amount of Ashia can replace their loved ones, but plead that they put their trust in God, for He alone can see them through during this trying moment.  They further said that time is a great factor and heals all wounds.

Mr. Najib Jreije, the representative of MAYA, a partner to CDC, also gave a word of encouragement to the bereaved families.  He used this opportunity to explain to all present at the ceremony that this gesture on their part, was to show how much they have CDC at heart. The 2,000,000 F.CFA was later handed to the representatives of the 20 CDC’s bereaved families.  Each of them received the sum of 100,000 FCFA. After all the representatives had received their packages, one of them thanked the General Manager of MAYA on their behalf for this kind gesture.  He further thanked the Management of CDC for their constant support ever since the fateful incident.  He also called on the bereaved families to take heart and forge ahead as no one can question the will of God.


In the same vein, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Assistant General Manager in Charge of Exploitation of Fimex International S.A., Messrs HENRI FOSSO and CHRISTIAN FOSSO had earlier paid a courtesy visit to the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC) on Thursday 7th October, 2013, to donate the sum of One Million francs CFA (1,000,000 FCFA) to support the bereaved families. The CEO, MR. HENRI FOSSO pointed out that owing to the long mutually beneficial relationship both companies have had, it was pivotal for Fimex International to support CDC and the bereaved families in this difficult moment.

Fimex International S.A. is a Cameroon based major supplier of phytosanitary products (agricultural input) to the Cameroon Development Corporation. The General Manager of CDC, MR. FRANKLIN NGONI NJIE was elated with the kind gesture, informing the Fimex International team that any donation however big or small is very much appreciated, as every donation will help to support and reach out to the bereaved Families.


The Catholic Mission Bota had also supported the Management of CDC with some money to assist the injured victims. This exercise took place at the CDC Cottage Hospital Tiko with the help of the Chief Medical Officer (CMO).  The sum of 10,000F.CFA was handed to each of the 18 victims still on admission, making a total of 180,000 F.CFA.  This was a wonderful gesture on the part of the Catholic Mission Bota which the patients greatly appreciated In fact one of them had to shed tears, it was indeed emotional.


With all these assistance from MAYA, FIMEX and the Catholic Mission Bota, it goes without saying that it is in time of pain, that you can truly identify your friend.  CDC is indeed grateful for this gesture.
