OFIAR is a non-governmental advocacy organization formed to attract and organize Nigerians who are dissatisfied with the status quo in governance and are ready to act. One of our key leads, Dr. Aham Onyike, experienced firsthand the impact of the social determinants of health as a barrier to accessible and affordable care, and how this is closely tied to the economy of a community. As a Nigerian-American, who sees the huge disparities between a developed and developing county, he decided to work with others to act!
The current conditions in Nigeria are extremely concerning and risk failure as a nation. But there is hope. We have the human talent and ability to succeed. We believe that transformational change is urgently needed and can be achieved with a mass movement that grows in strength and demands it.
We welcome any and all who are willing to donate in cash or kind towards our common goal.
