Give Hope, Share Love

Okapi Children Cancer Foundation (OCCF) is a Non-Governmental Organization formed in 2017 by a group of friends with a shared common passion for humanitarian deeds. OCCF was formerly known as Friends For a Cause until 2018 when the name was changed and in September 2019 the group was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria as a Non-profit/Non-Governmental organization.

The Foundation was inspired by the life of Tunde Ogungbayi who was popularly known as OKAPI. Tunde was born in 1966 and studied Accounting in the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University). He was diagnosed with Cancer in 2016 and sadly passed on to glory in May 2017.  He was a devoted father, husband, brother, son, friend, and colleague. Everyone who knew him would testify to his love for children, fitness, and healthy eating. He ran four (4) marathons and was a triathlete.

The foundation was set up to assist children battling cancer and be a formidable voice in the childhood cancer advocacy sphere. OCCF currently supports children receiving treatment in recognized public hospitals with Oncology Services in Abuja, Nigeria without reference to creed, religion, or ethnic affiliations. It is our hope to expand the scope of coverage in the future.

Over the period in which we have been operational, we have intervened in over 200 cases of children receiving treatment for different types of Cancer. Some of these Children are survivors of Cancer following our intervention and are living normal lives.

With your support we hope to extend our reach to save more Nigerian children.
