Nollywood star actress, Monalisa Chinda, has thrown her weight behind the battle to safeguard the health of Nigerian women, especially those suffering from Uterine Fibroid.
P.M.NEWS Entertainment Cafe learnt that the beautiful actress, through her Arise Monalisa Foundation, is collaborating with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, at creating awareness, and sensitizing the populace and sponsoring treatment of affected women across the country.
“It is in giving our lives away that we find meaning. We appreciate NAFDAC for this strategic partnership as we look forward to propagating awareness of this fast spreading yet widely neglected uterine fibroid, which has become very common among women due to ignorance and stigmatization,” said Monalisa during her visit to NAFDAC’s headquarters in Abuja recently.
Dr. Paul Orhii, Director General, NAFDAC, in his response, expressed the agency’s delight in working with Monalisa and her foundation.
In the last eight years, Monalisa has been supporting major autism campaign cause; funding education for the less privileged, visiting orphanages and prisons, while this year, she has chosen to embark on the Uterine Fibroid Project.
