OUR HISTORY & OVERVIEW

We are NGO for Child/Youth (and Young Women) Development and Empowerment via Education and Skills Acquisition/Empowerment Program.

OUR HISTORY

THE HUMANITARIAN FOUNDATION was established as a result of the long-time hunger and desire of the President to help wipe tears away from the less privileged among us in the society.

The president grew up seeing his mother give out almost everything including second to the last clothes and food to the poor and this heart of benevolence continued to grow in him as he continued from where his late mother, Prophetess Kessiah Igwe, stopped.


The founder and president, in the person of IGWEIKE RAPHAEL OTUM, started the work of “service to humanity” right from his early years in life with his mother and later continued after his secondary school days when he lived independently of his parents.

Initially, he did not know what he was doing until the Holy Spirit of God opened his eyes and gave him divine direction while he was observing one of his weekly prayer and fasting.

He was made to understand that the pots of food, bags of clothes, footwear and other valuables he gives out to the less privileged (and others in need) frequently could actually be done in a more organized manner with the consent of the government.

After few years, this very inspiration gave birth to this great vision known everywhere today as THE HUMANITARIAN FOUNDATION.


THE HUMANITARIAN FOUNDATION was incorporated on September 1st, 2020 with Registration Certificate Number (CAC/IT/NO: 150937), which automatically became her official date of commencement.
