Adda Mata Charity Foundation (AMCF) is a Nigerian based Non-Governmental and Not-for-profit organization created with the fundamental aim of uplifting underprivileged women and children through empowerment programmes and aids.
Purposed as a give-back scheme by the family of Garba and powered by Velvot Nigeria Limited, a leading Cloud Service Provider (CSP) in Nigeria with reach across Africa, ADDA MATA (Translated from Hausa to mean ELDERLY WIFE) was created in honour of late Mrs Garba who was a respected mother, wife and a figure to many, both to her immediate family and her community.
Registered with the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission, Adda Mata Charity Foundation was created to provide succour and relief through empowerment programmes targeted at these group of women. The programmes will focus on the different areas where underprivileged women, particularly elderly widows are affected the most; areas such as in healthcare, food, shelter, trade, etc.
Although with a bias to elderly poor widows, Adda Mata Charity Foundation also has a strong passion for the health and general wellbeing of disadvantaged single mothers as well as expectant mothers.
All over the world, pregnancy and childbirth come with their inherent risks to both mothers and their unborn children. Medical experts are of the opinion that where a mother is not given adequate prenatal and post-natal treatment and care, it can be fatal to both mother and child.
