Returning to Nigeria, Fr Charles became actively involved in community development projects and poverty alleviation programs. He started to hold mobile medical camps in rural villages which provided free treatment to thousands of people without any other access to medical care.
In 2010 with no resources but his own unquenchable energy he took an enormous leap of faith and founded the Spiritan Self Awareness Initiative (SSAI), a non-profit humanitarian organisation (registered with the National Corporate Affairs Commission, Abuja, Nigeria, and with theState Gender Affairs and Human Development Department, Enugu, Nigeria) of which he is the current Executive Director.
At present, Father Charles is a Catholic priest who spends every waking hour of his life in service to the poor and needy in Nigeria as well as in service to spiritual seekers of all faiths from around the world. He is a committed campaigner for a loving, inclusive, multi-faith approach to spirituality.
