Annemary Fiabema – Nigeria

Annemary-Fiabema2Annemary Fiabema, is the Founder of Faith Heritage Family (FHF) a Grassroots Humanitarian Organization, based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

The group was founded in 2010 as a vehicle to reach out to the very poor indigenous residents of the Waterfront (Waterside) communities in Port Harcourt. Her Vision is to reduce HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty to the barest minimum. Her Mission is to Inspire the Despairing to Aspire.

Scope of work: Since 2010, she has been organizing workshops on Sensitization/ Awareness on how to manage/ tackle the spread of HIV/AIDS in these vulnerable communities.

She also organizes outreaches every 27th of May (Children’s Day) and 1st of October (Independence Day) which are very symbolic days in Nigeria, to feed, clothe and provide free medicals to less privilege children, widows and the elderly. Her catchment areas are the Waterfront communities, locally known as “Water side” settlements.

Her work has been appreciated by a United Kingdom organization named Wobia Entertainment who gave her an Award for Services for Humanity in 2016. However, she has projected expanding her scope in the coming years to teaching the youths and young widows’ artisan skills so they can be self-employed and earn a living.
