It was founded in 2010 with a focus on promoting the wellness of people with special needs in the rural and semi-urban areas of the Eastern Region of Nigeria, West Africa. The driving force of the Foundation is the aspiration to alleviate the marginalization and neglect suffered by a cross-section of people with special needs in the face of seeming government incapacity and/or nonchalance.

Our volunteer medical team and social workers work tirelessly to unlock the potentials of the beneficiaries and restore their dignity and belief in humanity. The foundation has already reached out to and empowered thousands of individuals directly and indirectly through its charitable and medical activities in various communities throughout the Eastern Region of Nigeria.
Through our medical visitations, cash, materials and moral support to the destitute, we are able to put smiles on the faces of the beneficiaries while positive impact is being made in their lives. The organization is privately funded by its founders and supported by individuals who are passionate about helping the downtrodden in our society. One of our biggest assets is our volunteer team of selfless medical and social workers who are ready to serve the poorest of the poor in our communities. However, Bina Foundation is young but growing in leaps and bounds and always in need of volunteers who are passionate about our cause and want to make a difference in the society. We welcome local and international agencies that may be interested in partnering with us.
