It is worthy to note that the bride, Uloma serves as the Director General for Rochas Foundation. Just like her father, she is passionate about the less privileged.
Prior to this position, she headed the Operations Unit for the Foundation. Addressing members of the Press following her appointment in May 2012, she pledged to ensure that under her directorship, the foundation would reach out to 1 million lives within the next few years.
Back to the wedding 😉
