The Indigent Medical Fund (IMF)

The Indigent Medical Fund launched on Children's Day, the 27th of May, 2004 was established to render assistance to indigent children on admission in hospitals in Kwara State and whose parents are unable to offset the medical bills. This fund took off with Her Excellency's personal grant of N1.2m when she saw a child die in a hospital simply because the parents could not afford to pay for a blood transfusion.

The fund today caters to both the financial and medical needs of the destitute, the sick, the orphaned, the motherless and the handicapped.

Number of Persons Who Have Benefitted

As at the end of 2008, about 1000 individuals have benefitted from the IMF.

The Alaafia Kwara Indigent Medical Fund was set up by Her Excellency to bring succor to Kwarans who can not afford medical care. They both aim at reducing mortalities for avoidable reasons among children, women and even men who have come under their umbrellas. However, even more can be done if Kwarans come to the aid of this Fund with donations of cash and items that will bring comfort and save lives.
