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.

Ndidi Nwosu, Gold Medalist At Rio 2016 Paralymics Is Dead

“Ndidi sustained an injury from the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. She was a heavyweight powerlifter.

“She had been off and on in the hospital and that was why she couldn’t take part in this last World Cup.

Ndidi Nwosu, a rare gem is gone! The Federal Government of Nigeria should have done more to take care of this lady after she got injured on national duty.

It appears as of Ndidi’s life went downhill after her surgery. In the link below, Queen Uboh, former President of the Nigeria Powerlifting Federation spoke of sending Ndidi money at some point for her to start petty trading. But Ndidi had to use the money for medicines to treat her injured spinal column instead.

This is a sad end. I hope the Federal Government starts being more caring to our athletes.

That is how they left Rashidi Yekini who scored Nigeria’s first ever soccer World Cup goal to rot to death. Why?
