How Time Flies! Ten Years just like Yesterday when Doctor Marius Uchenna Ashibougwu left this World to be with his Maker.
His Passage at the young of 28 Years came as a Devastating Blow to His Mother Mareena Samuel, the entire Family and Close Associates.
The Desire to immortalize Doctor Marius birthed “The Marius Ashibougwu Foundation (MAUF ) ten years ago said the Executive Director Of The Foundation, Mareena Samuel.
“During his lifetime, he has always desired to own a foundation where the less privileged will be given a sense of belonging, cared for and given a hope for the future. That inspired the pay-off of MUAF which is providing hope for a better living. After he passed on, I felt the only way to keep his dream and name alive was to start his dream posthumously. He lived with no religious, ethnic or gender bias he saw everybody as one.
MUA Foundation is focused on a mission to saving lives, and alleviating sufferings, engaging in medical and educational sponsorships for the less privilege, bridging the gap of comforts for the needy. At MUA Foundation we envision a society where sustainable Health, Education, Economic and Social Rights of the less privileged, especially mother and child are protected. Our mission at MUA Foundation is to save lives, alleviate sufferings, promote good health and support the mitigation of the impact of infant mortality rate in Nigeria”
