To create more awareness of the brittle bone condition. Alleviate the suffering of these children to the barest minimum, and to equip OI children in Nigeria with the necessary tools to improve quality of life, achieve independence and greatness in their endeavours.
The OI Foundation Nigeria is the sole organisation set up to address the needs of people born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) in Nigeria and will be working with other African and international OI organisations.
Our charity wants a world in which the needs of people in Nigeria and around the world living with Osteogenesis Imperfect (Brittle Bone Disease) are understood, respected and to fully meet their needs.
We will work towards improving the quality of life for people diagnosed with OI in the country by providing advice, raising awareness, providing information, providing treatment and in the future be able to provide more like wheelchairs and equipment needed for quality and comfortable life.
We will also support and work with specialist healthcare professionals locally and internationally.
We distributed a number of wheelchairs and walking aids to children and young adults. Thanks to Bethany Community Church who collected items of clothing, shoes and toys so that we could share them with the families who are affected by OI.
Thanks to Globe Telly for helping us raise awareness.
Sharing information regarding OI is important to raise awareness.
