We are a grassroots organization established to provide much needed medical care to the indigents of the Ibo tribe in Nigeria who cannot afford to help themselves.

Our organization actively addresses and works on issues of health care; dealing with diseases such as hypertension, malaria, typhoid, insomnia, arthritic and chronic debilitating pain and providing education on prevention of many tropical diseases.

MAHAFA is a 501-(c) 3 Nonprofit
Organization for the People of Africa.


MAHAFA (Formerly known as AfricareMeds) Organization was founded by Chief, Deacon Richard Chibuna Anyanwu, a Registered Nurse and his wife Lolo Gertrude Adanma Anyanwu, also a nurse in 2002. The primary objective of this grassroots organization is to provide much needed medical care to the indigents of Ibo tribe in Nigeria.

The birth of MAHAFA is from the concept of helping those less fortunate indigents who could not afford to help
themselves.


After my mother's untimely death in 2001 due to cardiovascular accident (CVA) exacerbated by undiagnosed diabetes and poorly treated hypertension, three months after visiting my wife and I and our children in our home in Seaside, California, we wondered how many indigents are suffering from undiagnosed or misdiagnosed illnesses and doesn't even know it and how many have actually died.

Soon, we stopped wondering and started thinking of ways to help these indigents deal with this medical epidemic. From this thinking, came the formation of MAHAFA formerly known as AfricareMeds.

MAHAFA exists to promote better life for the indigents of Ibo tribe in Nigeria. The organization actively addresses and works on issues of health care: Dealing with diseases such as Hypertension, Malaria, Typhoid, Insomnia, Arthritic and Chronic debilitating pain and providing immunizations and education for the prevention of many tropical diseases. The Ibo people of Nigeria have suffered tremendously from Nigerian civil war to governments that care less about her own people. The unfortunate thing is that the money and goods raised by the bigger nonprofit organizations in the western world does not reach the poor masses it was intended for. In contrast, all money and goods raised by MAHAFA formerly known as MAHAFA (Formerly known as AfricareMeds) reaches their intended beneficiaries.

If this organization is to be successful, we call on all the good people of America and beyond to assist us in providing this vital service to those less fortunate.

I conclude with this biblical quote: "For those much is given, much is expected," and also a quote from Sir James Barrie "Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep if from themselves"'
