On Father’s Day each year, children acknowledge and appreciate their fathers and father figures who play an important role in their lives, be it emotionally, mentally, or even financially. On this day, children understand the importance of the role of a father in one’s life and acknowledge the contribution of fathers to their own families and society at large.
A passionate philanthropist, Chris Oyakhilome started the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International (COFI), a non-profit, non-governmental organization with the mission to help the most vulnerable people and communities in some of the poorest countries, and regions of the world. The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International (COFI) is a faith-based non-governmental, non-political organization under the direction of its visionary and legendary founder.
Father, Teacher, Mentor, and Friend
We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate our perfect father, our teacher, our mentor, our hero, and our visionary leader, who encapsulates everything a father figure should be.
Thank you, Chris Oyakhilome, for constantly teaching us to be God’s outstretched arm of love and well-being to the people and nations of the world, meeting the needs of the poor where the need is greatest. You play the role of father, in helping and making a difference to so many millions of needy children all around the world.
Father’s Day 2022 celebrates fathers, who are our first love, the last hero of our life, who teach strength in silence and since the value of a loving father has no price, it is commemorated in most parts of the world on the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day. First proposed in 1909 to complement Mother’s Day celebrations, Father’s Day is an opportunity to show your dad how much he means to you and the role he has played in shaping your life.
