Late Ibidun Ighodalo’s Foundation to commence third phase of free IVF
The third round of the free fertility therapy for Nigerian couples will shortly begin, thanks to the Ibidun Ighodalo Foundation (IIF).
In order to aid couples in having children through assisted reproduction, the foundation was established as a non-governmental organization (NGO) in 2016.
It was started by Ibidun Ighodalo, the head of one of Nigeria’s most prestigious event companies, Elizabeth R, and the late wife of Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, a Nigerian cleric.
The third cycle of the foundation’s “40at40” project will start on July 19, 2022, according to a recent announcement.
On June 14, 2020, Ibidunni passed away. She was the creator of the foundation and the spouse of Ituah Ighodalo, a senior pastor of Trinity House Church in Lagos.
The project is set up to carry out the late Ibidunni’s wish to provide IVF funds to 40 couples each year.
The vision was developed in honor of her 40th birthday, which she did not survive to see, before her tragic death two years ago.
A type of assisted reproductive technology called IVF is utilized for gestational surrogacy and infertility therapy.
“The foundation, in collaboration with renowned fertility medical partners, has administered IVF treatments to 80 recipients since inception. Beneficiaries of the first and second cycle have resulted in 10 babies thus far with many others currently undergoing their gestation period.”
