HFAM is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, EIN # 16-1677287 since 2004. Our mission statement is to alleviate suffering in impoverished areas in Africa and Latin America through the venues of Health care, Education, Sustainability, and Environmental protection including wildlife, as we plead the cause of the poor and needy, Pr 31:9. We focused on helping to make the world around us a better, happier place. With the help of our tireless staff we organize fundraisers, community-building events, and in-depth training sessions for our volunteers.
"Sometimes I feel like the need is overwhelming and I believe that the battle is lost. However, our efforts have not gone unnoticed by the people whose lives are changed by the relief supplies, or the health centers that have been equipped to meet their patient's needs. Then, I rejoice knowing that we have accomplished our goal." (-Relief worker in Cameroon)
We are excited about our new project to help the disenfranchised of sub-Saharan Africa, the Pygmy people. They are in a very serious danger due to deforestation by logging and oil companies, including poaching activities for ivory trafficking. These threats have forced the Pygmy communities leave their natural environment, the forest where they felt safe for centuries, and made them prey to cannibalism, sexual exploitation, AIDS, pollution, and extreme poverty. To bring the Baka Pygmies, back to their communities, HFAM have teamed up with Matthias missionary center, in Cameroon that have rescued over 1000 Pygmies adults not including the children since 2007.
HFAM have provided access to health care including education and farming skills. In addition, we are also fighting against poaching and STOP the suffering of wild life. In just three years 100,000 Elephants were killed according to National Geographic. We have played a strong advocacy role and requested to STOP negative forestry activities and protect the tropical forest. The result of our advocacy will create a policy that will protect the community and promote the restoration of a balanced ecosystem for cleaner air.
Conservation International reports that “more than 50 percent of modern medicines and more than 90 percent of traditional medicines come from wild plants and animals.”
