About Patrick And Hellen Foundation (PAHFO)

PAHFO is a community benefit organization committed to supporting underserved communities across Sub-Saharan Africa. We are a beacon of hope and compassion, dedicated to fostering health, and well-being among vulnerable families and communities within this diverse and dynamic region with Priority on Orphans and needy children. At the heart of every extraordinary journey lies a profound inspiration. For the Patrick And Hellen Foundation (PAHFO), this inspiration is deeply personal, stemming from the memories of our founder, Solomon Mpanga. Solomon’s life took a turn when, at the tender age of nine, he faced the heart-wrenching loss of his parents, Patrick and Hellen, his pillars of strength and love.

From the crucible of that challenging experience emerged a vision that has since grown into the Patrick And Hellen Foundation. Named in honor of the guiding lights of his life, PAHFO is a testament to the enduring power of love, resilience, and the unwavering belief that one can rise above adversity.
