Award-winning Nigerian actress, Tonto Dikeh, on Tuesday disclosed that she sponsored seven women for In vitro fertilisation, (IVF), in honour of the late wife of Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, Ibidunni.
The Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, on Tuesday revealed in an emotional tribute she wrote in remembrance of Ibidunni, who died a year ago.
Ibidunni before her death was the founder of the Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation, a non-profit organisation focused on helping families with infertility issues.
Having undergone IVF 11 times without success, Ibidunni dedicated her service to providing financial support for couples to undergo IVF and improve their fertility.
Dikeh wrote, “I only knew you (Ibidunni) at/in your death. I wondered why everyone seemed so sad and mourned you publicly. My first thought was ‘who is she?’ I did the girly thing…slide into your page and watched your beautiful life.”
“I took a stroll to your DM and I fell in love with you immediately. You tried to reach out as a support and pillar in my trying times. You were one of the only people who tried to help me and you did not even know me.”
“In your honour last year, I gave seven women IVF treatment to celebrate you in private. I am grateful for the love you wanted to give me. Keep resting in peace ma’am.”
