Dr Oyor had special affinity for the poor and less privileged. He made great personal sacrifices to rescue people from the clutches of poverty, ignorance, disease, homelessness and the myriad deprivations that plague lowly people in our clime.
Dr Oyor believed in empowerment; he believed that it is not enough to merely give handouts, but that people should be helped to stand on their own and become strong enough to help others. For this reason, many of those whom Dr Oyor supported, he did so over a significant length of time. He held people’s hands until they crossed over.
