"We set up Edak Willie Foundation to actualise a couple of dreams I had which were centred around sustainable growth and development for Africa and Africans, especially Nigerians."

"Nigeria is my country, my primary constituency. The challenges are the same where ever you go in Africa, save for a few variations, as a result of socio cultural differences, religious slants or ethnicity."

"Our belief at Edak Willie Foundation is that the answers, though not necessarily simple, are more readily available when we join hands, work together to create lasting solutions."

As part of her efforts to actualise this, the Edak Willie Foundation hosted a workshop on Lassa Fever environment hygiene sensitization, in a bid to curb the spread of the disease.

The outbreak of the Lassa Fever has caused the death of some Nigerians since the beginning of the year.

Lassa Fever can be contacted in a rat infested environment, with symptoms ranging from headache, sore throat, muscle pain, chest pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, cough, and abdominal pain.
