My name is Ms Ononuga. I am founder of Mnena Lupus Fundation and I am looking to raise £1M for the fundations Projects.
The Mnena Lupus Foundation is a non- profit established in memory of my sister Mnena who suffered for 18years and eventually died of Lupus. The aim is to be a voice of hope for Lupus patients and their families and friends.
When diagnosed early, Lupus patients have a high chance of survival with treatment.
I founded the Mnena Lupus Foundation to do the following:
1. Help women people living with Lupus stay alive by supporting them with cost of dialysis and life support medication without which many are dying in scores in Nigeria and accross Africa.
2 . To fund research on the prevalence and impact of Lupus in Africa beginning with a first of its kind baseline survey in Nigeria in 2021 .
3 . To offer free testing to suspected cases for an early diagnosis and treatment and save lives.
4. To set up a Lupus Resource Centre in Nigeria to facilitate free counselling, research (including a cure or herbal remedies), government and foreign aid intervention initiatives.
