FIGHTING CANCER

who are we

The Sarah Ayoka Oduwaiye Foundation (SAOF), a cancer charity, was established in Nigeria in 2008, with operations in the United Kingdom and the United States of America.  The foundation was established by Doctor Olayinka Oduwaiye in honour of his late mother, who tragically lost her battle with cancer. This personal loss inspired the creation of SAOF, with the mission of raising awareness about cancer and the importance of early detection.

WHAT WE DO

We are here

We’ve travelled across Nigeria, providing free medical care regardless of race, colour, ethnicity, or religion. Our commitment to this cause comes before anything else, and we have tangible results in the lives we’ve saved

We provide Education

SAOF is actively engaged in advocating cancer prevention and education. We deliver this information in people’s native languages and at an easily understandable level for a powerful and lasting impact

 

We lift healthcare

SAOF focuses on early detection of breast cancer through targeted initiatives. Our advocacy spans diverse communities. We champion awareness to ensure timely identification and intervention.

We are charitable

In addition to raising cancer awareness and providing treatment, we have various programs dedicated to enhancing healthcare development in Nigeria. We consistently carry out free medical outreach in rural areas and offer primary healthcare interventions

We believe in Youths

We support youths by raising teenage cancer awareness, menstrual hygiene, and sex education. We provide mentorship and scholarships to excellent students and vulnerable students who can’t pay school fees, particularly in Nigeria

We rely on People

Helping others is humanity. We can’t make it without help from people. We are thankful to them for volunteering and giving donations. We can only provide help from them. Through their unwavering dedication and hard work, our volunteers help us extend our reach to under-served communities,

Core Values
