The third fundraiser of the year supports the Samuel Omogo Foundation, a Nigerian water well project. The Samuel Omogo Foundation was created in 2012 by Marge Wilson, Karie James and Fr. Peter Omogo to foster the responsible development of clean water sources for villages in south eastern Nigeria. Samuel Omogo was a Nigerian man, and Fr. Peter's brother, who dedicated his life to improving the lives of people in Nigerian villages. Samuel was known for his philanthropic deeds of visiting the sick, bringing food, clothing and school supplies to those in need. He died, after battling an illness, at the young age of 47. To honor his commitment to improving the health and wellness of Nigerian people, the Samuel Omogo Foundation builds water wells for people in local villages. Today, the foundation helps bring clean water to approximately 103,000 people whom would otherwise drink and cook using contaminated water from creeks, caves and river beds.
The doctors at BFC will be working with Fr. Peter Omogo and all proceeds will go towards a water well in Nigeria.
