The world has been facing its biggest challenges over the past few years. That is why it is heartwarming to see people from different parts of the world standing up together to provide aid and assistance to those who are in desperate need of help. One of the organizations that has been making a difference is the Marvellous Foundation.
The Beginning of Change
Headed by H. E. Marvin Rauf, the Marvellous Foundation continues to grow slowly with volunteers by word of mouth. This nonprofit organization started when Marvin and his friends built a well in Africa to help increase the supply of water there. From there, they dedicated themselves to providing charity and every kind of assistance to those in need.
Since their inception, the Marvellous Foundation has provided aid and support for different organizations and individuals. This includes the Good Samaritan Rehabilitation Centre, a facility that offers residential treatment programs for people with addictions.
The Dangers of Helping
It is well-known that Africa’s vast terrains are divided by the various tribes that occupy different territories. Add to that the dangerous animals in the wilderness that surround the towns and villages, and it is almost impossible to go through.
This is the biggest challenge that Marvin and the Marvellous Foundation continue to face. There is always a huge risk when the team goes to the families and communities they intend to help. Despite the peril they continue to encounter, the Marvellous Foundation remains committed to providing the assistance that the less fortunate in Africa need.
The Ultimate Goal
Marvin Rauf has always been an advocate for education. He believes that education provides the most important role in life for all children, in particular for those from underprivileged backgrounds. It provides creative forms of engagement to help reach their potential and break the cycle of deprivation.
That is why, during their visits to Mathare in Nairobi, Kenya, the Marvellous Foundation visited the Good Samaritan Children’s Home. Their brief stay stirred them into making small changes to better the living and sleeping conditions of the kids there.
The Marvellous Foundation helped refurbish some of the dormitories. Due to age, stress, and anxieties, bedwetting is a common concern in the home, thus most of them having soiled mattresses. This also results in hygiene issues.
Marvin Rauf and his team provided comfortable, new mattresses, waterproof mattress covers, floor coverings, and rugs. They sourced all the products and materials locally in Nairobi, further adding to their commitment to sustainable communities. Their plan is to fund 40 mattresses and covers more to supply a total of 4 dormitories in the children’s home.
“I am committed to further inspire leaders to prioritise the children, their wellbeing, and their education,” said Marvin. “An educated and cared for community gives hope for change and progress.”
Overall, the ultimate goal for Marvin is for people to be aware of what the Marvellous Foundation is doing so they can donate and help out those who are less fortunate.“We need your help to carry on reaching out to people who need our assistance and support.”
