On the 31st of December 2017 and 06th January 2018, the Nde family lost their mother Ma NDE ELIZABETH and their father Pa NDE ZACHARIA respectively. The family regretted the loss of their loving parents whom they believed could have lived for much longer had they had access to better medical care or assistance. In memory and honour of their parents/grandparents, on the 19th May 2019, the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Pa and Ma Nde on the initiative of ENYIH STANLEY NDE met at their family compound in Muea, Buea, Cameroon and from deliberations that ensued, founded the NDES FOUNDATION (NDEF).
During the constituent meeting on that 19th May 2019, the pioneer members of the foundation deliberated on different ways of assisting the underprivileged and needy. They thus adopted a two-fold mission for the foundation- to provide health related assistance and scholarships to the underprivileged and persons in rural communities. Since then the NDES FOUNDATION has strived to provide timely medical and educational assistance to hundreds of underprivileged persons worldwide.
