Speaking on what led to the laudable work of the foundation, Engr. Unuezi Oduh said: “Well, the fact is when you do good, you don’t expect people to pay you back with anything. You are just doing it because God placed it in your heart to do this good thing. God knows my reward that he has for me. No human reward is attached to what I am doing. It is just a philanthropic work, there is no motive towards that, it is the foundation’s nature to do this work, to just put a smile on humanity, there is no motive, it is just the goodwill.

“To engage in charitable activities that will advance the social and economic wellbeing of the less privileged through the promotion of sustainable education, mentoring and skills acquisition.To harness and focus the potentials of the less privileged for the social and economic growth and development of Isoko nation and indeed Delta state and Nigeria.” he added.
