The Founder of EDAF, Sir (Dr.) Edet James Amana (OON), while speaking with the press, stated that in seven years, the organization has reached out to over 7,000 people who were beneficiaries of EDAF’s free annual Oron Medical Outreach Programme Oro – MedOR around the Oron axis of the State.

‘’I’ve always had a passion to use what God has bestowed in me to bless other people. I love to see people live a healthy lifestyle, hence my decision to start the Edet Amana foundation. We chose to bring this initiative to the rural area because we realized that they lacked proper access to healthcare facilities within the locality’’, Sir Amana, said.
