About ORAUSA National Convention


ORA USA raises fund to carry out projects like the medical mission, microfinance, youth program, and other projects


Come mingle, network, bond, interact and meet fellow Orlu citizens and others from around the world. 

Women Forum

The Micro Finance program, championed by ORAUSA women, raises funds independently to enable widowed women in the Orlu region to be self-sustaining


Our program is designed to ensure that the legacy of ORA USA lives on. At our convention, our children, youths and young adults enjoy programs that are tailored to their age groups.


Good health hinges on a healthy lifestyle, early detection, and adherence to treatment.  An onsite health screen will be provided at the convention.


Each year, ORA USA presents awards/certificates to ORA USA members and youths: Orlu Citizen of the Year, Orlu New Generation Award, Ikechukwu Onwuzurike Legacy Education Award,  and Youth presenters Certificates.
