Project /Logistics Officer At Ohonyeta Care Givers (OCAG)
Ohonyeta Care Givers (OCAG) is a Non-Government Organization (NGO) established in 1997 in Otukpo, Benue State of Nigeria to address the socio-economic and health concerns of the people of Benue and other poor communities in Nigeria.
Ohonyeta which means ‘Saviour’ in Idoma, is the brain child of Dr. Esther Oigoga. She is passionate about addressing the challenges of women and children in and around Otukpo. She shared this vision with a group of selfless individuals and thus, Ohonyeta Care Givers was born. After identifying a strong link between poverty and health, the need to fight poverty and improve health, particularly among the HIV infected men, women and orphaned and vulnerable children was identified. OCAG then provided home based care services, counseling services, treatment of minor ailments, home visits and referrals out of a car garage office. That notwithstanding the founders continued to provide the services with diligence and commitment.
