As part of efforts to tackle infertility and raise awareness about fertility treatments in Nigeria, the Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation (IIF) has awarded financial aid to 28 couples who require fertility treatments.
President and Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation, Mrs. Ibidunni Ighodalo, said the grant offered by the Foundation was borne out from the desire to provide couples with the financial aid to actualise their dreams of starting a family.
“We understand the challenges many couples face in their time of wait and it is for this reason we are committed to going with them on this journey and together, we believe their hopes will be turned to happiness,” she said.
Speaking further Ighodalo said, “application for this first phase of the grant ended 31 May with the selected couples emerging from different states across the country. These couples will meet with a team of medical experts to ascertain their medical viability through a series of assessments and pre-tests, following which we will work with them in organising payments to a certified fertility clinic in the country for fertility services received.”
The Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation grant award funds towards fertility treatments such as In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), Frozen Embryo Transfer and Intrauterine Insemination through donations and strategic partnerships with fertility clinics.
