Fountains of Compassion
Fountains of Compassion is a charitable, not-for-profit organization founded by Rev. Fr. Philip Paul Tah in the wake of the violent raid and destruction of our communities of Nsadop in Cross River State, Nigeria, by their neighbors. On the 23rd of Oct. 2010, inhabitants of the Nsadop communities lost in a single violent raid 513 houses, about 96% of their homes and 37 people, including men, women, and children. Though our work started as a response to this tragedy in Nsadop, we have since expanded our services to other areas of urgent human needs and other communities and countries. During this period, we have invested in three empowerment initiatives: Education and skill acquisition training, Integral Health care services, and Community development. Fountains of Compassion is founded on the principles of decency, accountability, transparency, service, and complete dedication to the cause of rebuilding broken lives and communities and keeping the promise of a more humane society.
