The Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation
The Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation (IIF) is a non-profit organization created to raise awareness on issues pertaining to infertility and to provide grants for couples that require fertility treatments such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine Insemination.
We partner with highly reputable fertility clinics in Nigeria and with other donors to provide couples with the financial and material support they require during the treatments. We also provide the necessary psychological and spiritual support they require to deal with the pressures they face along their journey to conception.
To raise awareness about infertility and the challenges associated with it. To stop the stigmatization of couples dealing with infertility and to provide the spiritual, financial and psychological support they require.
To have every couple enjoy the gift of parenthood regardless of their financial or social status but the main focus is for those who cannot afford such treatment.
