A SMALL ACT OF GENEROSITY CHANGES A LIFE FOREVER

Our mission is simple – help feed families as they intentionally grow spiritually.

The reality is there are a number of families who do not have enough food to properly break fast.  We are here to help those families in need.

Our goal is to serve at least 100 families within the local community of Cameroon, Africa.  With your help, we can achieve our goal! 

  • • Within a minimum of $25.00, we can feed a family of 7. 
  • • Each family will receive a 44.5 Grocery Bag with food to last at least 1 week.

Food Donation Accomplishments

April 2022 - Community Food Drive

The 44.5 Foundation Cameroon chapter hosted a food drive for Douala Muslim faithful at the Bonaberi Al Haqqou masjido. 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.

December 2021 - Community Food Drive

The 44.5 Foundation monthly food drive for December is a huge booster to many families during the holiday season when food prices are notoriously high. The December food drive was held at the Bonabéri Hausa chief compound, where we distributed 5kg bags of rice, 2kg of spaghetti, and a liter of cooking oil to 45 families. All of them expressed gratitude for the 44.5 Foundation’s continued support of needy families in the Bonabéri district of Douala. Also, the foundation reached out this month to the physically challenged also to share some holiday cheers.

November 2021 - Community Food Drive

44.5 Foundation renewed its monthly food drive efforts in Cameroon on November 4, 2021. The drive focused on the elderly, who have been in dire situations, recently. 50 different families were abundantly grateful for the foundation’s food donation of 1 liter of cooking oil, 2kg of spaghetti, and a 5kg bag of rice, which will support each family up to 14 days.

August 2021 - Community Food Drive

Our monthly food drive was a huge success held at the terrace of the Hausa Chief Palace in Bonabéri, Douala. We distributed 1kg of pasta, 2 liters of cooking oil, and 5kg bags of rice to 50 families. Emotions ran high as many of the mothers expressed profound gratitude for the foundation’s steadfast assistance to the needy. At the end of the distribution, there were lots of hugs and appreciation to the 44.5 Foundation’s leadership, and prayers concluded the event.

July 2021 - Community Food Drive

To commemorate God’s test of Ibrahim, many Muslim families sacrifice an animal and share the meat with the poor. The celebration usually spans 4 days worldwide. 44.5 Foundation provided 50 families with cuts of lamb, a 5kg bag of rice and 2 liters of cooking oil.
