Meet the Founder
Mr. Paul Odili is the President and Founder of Fountain of Joy and Comfort Foundation. Hailing from Delta State in Nigeria, Mr. Odili grew up with a deeply rooted compassion and hunger to touch the lives of the less privileged. His belief is that God blesses people so that they can be blessings to humanity and not enjoy life selfishly.
With an academic background in Business Administration, Mr. Odili is the Chairman of Paulo Group of Companies with various arms which include Paulo Communications, Paulo Homes Limited, Paulo Oil & Gas Limited, and PauliHam Hotels and Resort. His business successes fueled his passion to be a blessing to humanity. On the 27th of January 2011, the Founder had a vision where God revealed two groups of people; one group was happy, rejoicing and full of smiles whereas the other group was penurious, suffering and helpless. “I am sending you to the helpless and wounded people, to give them joy”, the Lord said to him in the vision. That vision gave birth to Fountain of Joy and Comfort Foundation.
And the God-given ministry of “bringing joy to humanity” began in October 2011, with the registration of Fountain of Joy and Comfort Foundation with Corporate Affairs Commission(CAC) as a not for profit Non-Governmental Organization. The Foundation has helped thousands of people solve various eye problems, maternal and child health challenges, and given education to many less privileged people.
