CHRIS MATHERS INC. has been re-engaged for a fourth year by the UK Department for International Development's Justice for All program (J4A) to provide technical assistance to Nigeria's anti-corruption agencies.
The long-term goal of this engagement is to provide investigative assistance, mentoring and training to investigators from the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Financial Intelligence Unit, Independent Corrupt Practices and their Related Offences Commission and the Code of Conduct Bureau.
Our mission in supporting this charity is to serve the Ngäbe-Buglé indigenous tribe in the hills of the remote Veraguas province in the Republic of Panama. Our efforts are directed at helping to provide much needed basic resources for infants and children, from ages 1 month through 10 years, who live in extreme poverty.
Examples of assistance include, support for the purchase of a cooking range for a children’s nursery, to avoid cooking on an open fire on rocks, providing orthopaedic shoes for children and clothing to protect them from mosquitos.
The charity also provides basic school supplies which allow the children to have a bag to carry their books, shoes to avoid having to walk barefoot and a small snack to ensure that they have something to eat.
Since Ngabe Kids is a foreign charity, there is no Canadian or U.S. tax deduction available for contributions.
