Sir Okwuosa noted that the foundation’s intervention was to assist government in alleviating sufferings of the people in the lockdown era as government could not do it alone.

“Government is limited in terms of what it can do. Organizations and individuals have roles to play. Communities have people who are blessed and it is time to come to the rescue of our people. It will be very painful for people to die of hunger virus. And you know Doctors can treat patients but they cannot feed them.
