The President of OCI Foundation, Chris Ifediora has since expressed gratitude to those who voted for the Foundation, saying that their support made the achievement of this feat possible.
In an official release titled, Deep Appreciation, he said, “Without your support at the voting (both directly, and by influencing other votes), we would not have achieved this feat, which saw us picked winners from a pool of 5 finalists, having already been adjudged better than scores of others across Australia.
“Your individual and collective role in delivering the innovative projects and vision of the OCI Foundation is what created this opportunity in the first instance, and we also acknowledge this.
“Together, we can, and will, continue to do more for humanity. We have only just started. We are grateful”.
Alongside the President, the OCI Foundation was represented by Pastor Nico Smit, a Director of the Foundation.
