The ambition of this global project of the SING AFRICA project is to highlight the abilities of our local talents in sectors such as health, education and many others But that of our oxygen unit leaves the principle that access to oxygen care is quite complex due to its unavailability in remote areas generally with a high population concentration, but also its accessibility in terms of cost.
Yet nature offers us free air and this air contains 21% oxygen. There are therefore methods for recovering this oxygen with a purity of at least 92%.
Conventional machines capable of extracting oxygen exist on the market but are quite expensive (on average $ 1,337 or 800,000 CFA francs) and can only be used for one patient. If we find ourselves in a case like the one we live in with several patients in urgent need of oxygen, we would have to use several machines or have to watch some patients lose their lives.
This situation made a group of young Cameroonians to think about a solution which is very much affordable.
