The Elfreeda Foundation is an open shelter for homeless women and children., founded by Mrs Uloma Rochas Nwosu, the daughter of the incumbent Governor of Imo State. In her words, her love for giving and helping the needy developed when as a young girl, she would go with her family, once a month to share food to the needy in a part of Kaduna. This imbibed in her a sense of compassion, and a desire to help the poor. The Foundation’s mission, she disclosed, is to “strive every day to create a haven where homeless women and children find stability and access to the basic needs of life’’.
