The Archbishop of Bamenda and Chancellor of the Catholic University of Cameroon, CATUC, Bamenda, His Grace  Cornelius F. Esua, received a consignment of Microscopes and Books donated to CATUC by a group of colleges in the District  of Saint Anthonio in the USA. The gifts were brought to CATUC by Sr. Gemma Abonge.

Esua was particularly grateful and said CATUC will always appreciate this gesture and any future gestures of this form. He also thanked Sr. Gemma for thinking of CATUC when this opportunity came to her.
