Funding is a major challenge to a lot of families due to lack of government financial support for medical intervention and unavailability of infertility treatment for citizens, as is the practice in the United Kingdom through NHS (National Health Scheme). HMOs in Nigeria do not also support fertility treatment while some developed countries give at least 1 to 3 free attempts of fertility treatment in public hospitals.
At Parah Family Foundation, we provide psychological and financial support for families experiencing infertility and one of the ways we aim to do that is through a fundraising initiative called #100FAMILIES4ART. It is aimed at supporting at least 100 families with free ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology).
With more than 60 success stories recorded so far, we would keep intensifying efforts to break the ‘myth’ around infertility, reach out and help more families in Nigeria.
PARAH simply means Fruitfulness in Hebrew and it has three main focus areas; Spiritual, lifestyle and Medical.
Asides raising fund for the project, the ‘Journey to Parah’ by Dayo Odukoya will provide spiritual and emotional comfort to families around the countries and beyond.
