Our Current Campaigns

Ramadan Food Drive

On April 19th 2022 The 44.5 Foundation Cameroon chapter hosted a food drive for Douala Muslim faithful at the Bonaberi Al Haqqou Masjid. We distributed to over 100 families 5kg bags of rice, 1L of cooking oil, 1kg of sugar, and 1kg of flour each. We have relentlessly worked to alleviate the economic burden caused on poor families due to rising inflation. As families gather to break bread at the end of each fasting day, 44.5 Foundation stands by them to honor their daily sacrifice.
