“Our mission is to bring support to the less privileged and vulnerable people that is why we aim at re-integrating women with a particular focus on widows through the strategy tagged `C.A.R.E.’ (Counselling, Advisory, Rehabilitation and Empowerment),” he said.

He told the crowd how the idea for the foundation started, saying “my younger brother, Mr Okefe Omoraka, suggested it and when I saw that it stood for all what papa stood for in touching lives, I embraced it.”
