Cameroon Yaounde

Ndi Faith, a student and young parent from Cameroon in Africa. 

A 22 year old mother of a 2 year old daughter. 

She had her daughter in 2018, even though her child's father accepted that she would keep the pregnancy; he didn't really assist her in preparing for the babies arrival. Ndi Faith parent's on the other hand were not ready, to add another responsibility on themselves. So she had difficulties taking care of the baby, especially as a student. 

One day while browsing on Facebook she saw a post from Ambitiously Him Her King Foundation, which caught her attention. She saw how the organization was giving out baby food and clothes to some young parents and she decided to message, for more details but was to ashamed, so she stalled in the messaging process. 

She visited the page everyday to see how they were helping parents until one day, a question was asked; "If there's any parents who needed help"? She, messaged but stated, she was in Cameroon. 

This is how Ndi Faith began communicating with the founder of the Organization. 

Latonya Patterson tried to get items sent to Ndi Faith but it was very costly sending from the States to Cameroon. After 2 years of feeling hopeless with no help, She messaged the founder again. The organization finally succeeded in assisting her with pay for her daughters daycare.

This is the moment Ndi Faith, agreed to help Young Parents in her country through Ambitiously Him Her King Foundation. They vowed to help two Young Parents a month, in Cameroon. 

Ndi Faith will make sure Young Cameroonian Parents are Blessed and receive the baby Essentials they need.
