Community Food Drive
The 44.5 Foundation Cameroon chapter hosted a food drive for at the compound of the the Hausa Chief Palace in Bonaberi Douala. The event started with an opening prayer by community leader Mrs Zulay Oumarou. We was able to distribute 5kg bags of rice, 2 liters of cooking oil and 1kg of pasta to 90 families. Our oldest mothers yet again were profoundly grateful for the foundation’s unrelenting efforts toward the community in terms of food assistance.
Community School Supplies Drive
The 44.5 Foundation Cameroon chapter once again honored its commitment to recipients in the City of Douala by organizing a school supplies donation drive for needy children in Bonaberi neighborhood. The event was held at the Hausa Chiefs Palace compound. We donated notebooks, pens and pencils, and other supplies to 100-plus parents and kids. Each parent or child was given 4 notebooks, a pencil, and 2 ballpoint pens.
Community Clothes Drive
The 44.5 Foundation clothing drive took place on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Bonaberi of Douala. About 200 families including fathers, mothers, and grandparents took turns during a 5-hour exercise picking out clothing according to needs.
The attendees were delighted at the fact that the clothes had been cleaned and smelled fresh. This clearly was unprecedented in the community for anyone to hold a clothing giveaway exercise. We even attracted the admiration of local city council members who came along and not only offered words of encouragement but we’re simply amazed at the consistency of the 44.5 Foundation in showing up monthly for the underprivileged of Douala.
Many parents made testimonials saying this was indeed a fantastic idea because the clothing drive addresses an immediate and fundamental needs.
