The late wife of founding pastor of Trinity House Church, Ibidun Ighodalo will be remembered for helping childless couples. She helped many conceive through IVF.
She boldly fought the stigma associated with not having a child. The successful businesswoman married popular Pastor Itua Ighodalo, and he was her rock in this philanthropic work. This former beauty queen had a heart of gold.
She didn’t allow her childlessness being her down. She instead chose to shine the light to those without children in a world that is often harsh to them.
Late Ibidun Ighodalo founded the Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation (IIF), an NGO to raise awareness about infertility and to provide grants for couples that require fertility treatments such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine Insemination.
“I made a covenant with God and told Him that I would leave it completely in His hands,” she said in a personal message posted to the Foundation’s website.
“In the interim, as we wait for our miracle, I would help couples going through the same challenges by providing spiritual, financial and psychological support.
“I was ready to do my part to get rid of the stigma attached to childlessness. I wanted people to instead see couples-in-waiting as blessed mothers and fathers of nations!”
May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
