December 2022 (Nsugbe, Nigeria).
The OCI Foundation has, for the third year in a row, supported the soccer club, Amumu Village FC, which is one of the clubs that feature in the annual “Nsugbe Orula Soccer Competition“. The competition holds yearly as part of the Christmas and New Year festivities.
As was the case in (2020 and 2021), the OCI Foundation presented the soccer outfit with brand new jerseys, along with refreshments during the competition. Soccer boots and other logistic supports were part of the support provided to the team in the past.
The OCI Foundation’s President, Dr Chris Ifediora, is from Amumu Village, Nsugbe, Anambra State of Nigeria. This gesture is part of the OCI Foundation’s activities on Advance Social & Public Welfare, one of its 3 main activity-tripod.
Established in 2016, the OCI Foundation is an international NGO that is registered in Nigeria (2016), Australia (2018) and the UK (2023). It has activities across 3 major areas, which are to “Promote and Advance Health”, “Advance Education”, and “Advance Social & Public Welfare” among the Nigerian populace.
Since its creation, indigenes of Nsugbe, the Founder’s home town, have been major beneficiaries of the OCI Foundation’s activities, particularly its annual educational scholarship schemes, and social welfare/empowerment programs. More benefits are expected in the coming years, not just for Nsugbe indigenes, but the rest of Nigerians.
