Tanyimor Foundation Inc. was created to honor our late father, grandfather, brother, guardian and friend, Mbi Morfaw Tanyinguh of Fonge Village, Fontem, Lebialem Division, Republic of Cameroon, West Africa.

LITTLE HISTORY

Mbi Morfaw Tanyinguh was an altruist, a very great philanthropist and humanitarian, a very generous man who gave out a lot to people indiscriminately. He made a fortune in his lifetime but sacrificed it to people, giving out money and material to help family members, friends and other external individuals needing help. He extended his hospitality to many students from neighboring villages who came and lived in his compound to attend school.

Tanyimor Foundation Inc. has been created to keep his legacy alive.

He left this planet on May 16th, 1986 and has since then been resting by the side of the Lord. His wife Mama Esther Nkengafac Morfaw lived the same life and had the same qualities. She joined her husband in this astral journey on January 29th, 2004.

May their souls rest in perfect peace!
