AADOFA provides a voluntary assessments and feasibility studies that leads to providing specific medical and clinical interventions. Such activities are intended to reduce disease risk, treat illness, or palliate the consequences of disease and disability

We from the African diaspora residing in the United States cannot turn our backs to the massive suffering  of marginalized communities in Africa. Under the leadership of Chairman Peter A. Sam and Mayor Emmanuel Cleaver, we have henceforth initiated the first AADOFA trip to Ghana, West Africa in March of 1998.


We believe that a sound approach to development must be holistic and must be built and sound environmental management,  The AADOFA program is a humanitarian program that promotes  the principles of Sustainable Development.  We believe that good health especially for women and children in Africa is a solid foundation for building capacity & sustainable development. Therefore AADOFA provides voluntary medical services to Africa on an annual basis in concert with developing trade and commence between American and the African communities.  The linkages between sound economy, balance nutrition, health workforce, productivity, nutrition, environment and development all imply that a better living condition and economic growth must reflect a healthy population. Sound environmental management and adequate health services are basis for creating a healthy population. A health population is a building block for sound economy, healthy workforce and sustainable environment.
