She gave governor Okowa a pat on the back for his agenda on prosperity for all Deltans, noting that, Governor Okowa has positively affected the lives of many Deltans through his agenda on prosperity for all Deltans
According to her, it may interest many to know that here in SEF, we have empowered a lot of women, men and children through free skill acquisition programs and provision of cash. Our host community, Enerhen and beneficiaries from other local government areas of Delta State and states like Anambra, Abia, Enugu and others can attest to this fact.” We believe that the beneficiaries would in turn empower others, and some of them have actually empowered others”
The foundation has embarked on several awareness campaigns on environmental sanitation, offered free community health services in Enerhen and other communities.
Besides, SEF has also embarked on awareness campaign against the spread of Lassa fever and the dreaded Coronavirus as the foundation held a town hall meeting with residents of Enerhen community on these health issues.
