Monalisa Gives Back, Supports Fibroid Surgeries
ONE thing that has endeared Monalisa Chinda to many people is her willingness to always give back to society. Yearly, Monalisa, through her foundation the Monalisa Chinda Foundation (MCF) supports causes such as autism and slum children. This time, her interest is providing sustained basis care for women with cases of uterine fibroid.
The actress plans to treat 10 women this year in what she says represents her contribution to the effort at raising awareness about the condition. However, she is leading MCF to partner the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to help create public knowledge in uterine fibroids in women. “There is no awareness about uterine fibroid in Nigeria at the moment. We want to work with NAFDAC to create more awareness”, she said during a visit to the Director General of NAFDAC Dr. Paul Orhi in Abuja last week. The DG thanked Monalisa for the visit and pledged NAFDAC’s support for the project.
