Advisory Board (Matrons & Patrons)

The Advisory Board — also called „Matrons and Patrons“ — are persons of goodwill who support the ideologies and principles of the association but do not fulfil the criteria of becoming a member. They commit and engage themselves to support the members to achieve the goals of the association.

Anybody who wishes to become a member of the Advisory Board of AWE e.V. must submit a written application to the Chairlady of the organization. The request is vetted in the General Assembly.
On approval, the Matron, Patron or Representative signs a written agreement with the organization.


Matron Adeline Fomundam
Assisting people is my passion, that’s why I do what I do. The healthcare profession is basically about helping people get on their feet in ways that will maximize their output.
My career path has led me to come across persons with different kinds of needs, that are met by a variety of people in the care giver team.
I have helped organize as well as participate in international conferences for various African countries.
AWE presents a good platform to identify and work on meeting the needs of people as a goal to get them on their feet in life.
