Sis. Veronica Lum Mundi

Nov 30, 2013

Sister Veronica, 44, is from Santa village in the North West Region (NWR) of CMR. She gave her life to the Lord Jesus Christ about 14 years ago. She lived in Douala with the husband; they had no child. While in Douala she fellowshipped at the TACC Ngole Assembly. Six years ago, the husband left for Gabon. He was in communication with her, but stopped taking her calls suddenly.

A few years after the husband left, Sister Veronica fell sick and was diagnosed to be HIV positive. She was placed on antiretroviral drugs. As a result of her increasing poor health, she discontinued the puff balls business she depended on and returned to Bamenda. She fellowships at the Nkwen Park Assembly in Nkwen District, NWR. In Bamenda, she visited the Day Care Cener for HIV drugs but was refused because of her inability to afford the sum of 16,000 FCFA for confirmatory tests to be conducted. She has been living without the drugs for more than a year now and her health situation is depreciating continuously.

Presently, she survives on a little support of 15,000 FCFA per month from a neighbor for occasional babysitting. She spends 7,000 FCFA for rents and 1,000 FCFA for electric bill. The balance of 7,000 FCFA is unable to meet the rest of her needs. As a result, she doesn’t feed well. An Elder who supported her periodically has moved out of Bamenda.

Presently, she survives on a little support of 15,000 FCFA per month from a neighbor for occasional babysitting. She spends 7,000 FCFA for rents and 1,000 FCFA for electric bill. The balance of 7,000 FCFA is unable to meet the rest of her needs. As a result, she doesn’t feed well. An Elder who supported her periodically has moved out of Bamenda. She needed assistance to start a small business to be able to be self-sustainable as follows: house rent and electric bill for a period of six months (8,000 FCFA x 6) 48,000 FCFA while she goes through this transition of business; 16,000 FCFA for HIV confirmatory tests in order to have access to antiretroviral drugs; a capital 150,000 FCFA to start retailing foodstuff in the market; 30,000 FCFA to pay her business space for six months (5000 FCFA x 6). In total, she needs 244,000 FCFA in assistance.

Our Liaison Officer and counselor for this case is Sister Sylvie in Bamenda.

On October 10 2013, Tacc-friends Int’l Association disbursed $515.79 through Sis Sylvie for this project. Sis Veronica was able to do her HIV confirmatory tests and now has access to antiretroviral drugs. She was also able to pay her rent and utility bills for a 6 month transitional period. In addition, she rent a shed in the market for 6 months, where she sells raw food items she bought with the balance of funds from Tacc-Friends. On November 13 2013, Sister Veronica sent the following words of appreciation to tacc-friends association:

“Dearly beloved brethren, I greet you all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In fact, I do not know how to express my gratitude for what you people have done to me. This is a real confirmation that the Lord does not fail those who trust in Him. I was overwhelmed with joy when Sister Sylvie presented to me a receipt of 244000 FRS sent to me by TACC friends International Association. My life has changed. My house rent, electric bill and business space have been paid for six months each, the business set up and more importantly, I have succeeded to go through the testing procedure in the hospital and was able to collect my drugs today. This is a divine miracle in my life at a time that people thought all hopes were lost. Indeed it is a great testimony in my family, church and the neighborhood. I do not actually know how to thank you enough but I pray that the Almighty God should bless you abundantly and enlarge the ministry so that many more desperate Christians can be assisted. To God be the Glory. Amen.”
