On November 12, 2017, the Chinese medical team to Cameroon held a free clinic at the CMEC project site for the Yaounde Sanaga Waterworks and related work. Altogether more than 200 people including the Cameroonian employees on the project and local residents received medical examinations and treatment. Quite some of them experienced acupuncture, cupping and other traditional Chinese therapies. The mayor of the city which is home to the waterworks complained of his long-time back pain and after the acupuncture he felt much better thanks to the magical Chinese therapy. In addition to the free medical examinations and treatment, the medical team offered the patients drugs worth nearly tens of thousands of yuan for free.

The Yaounde Sanaga Waterworks and related work constitute the EPC project of SINOMACH, undertaken by CMEC. The project involves a contract amount of 798 million USD, with commercial loans from the Import-Export Bank of China. It is planned to supply 300 thousand cubic meters of water per day and the volume will gradually increase to 400 thousand cubic meters per day. Started at the end of 2016, the project is scheduled to be completed within three years. When built up, the project will reduce the water shortage by over 250 thousand cubic meters per day for the capital Yaounde and the surrounding areas, to the benefit of over two million people.
