Greetings to you from the Irede Foundation.

First, we would like to thank our partners (corporate, individual, media), volunteers, sponsors and social media community; on your commitment and devotion to our cause, you have consistently restored hope to child amputees for the last 6 Powerful though the Irede foundation team.

This year, we celebrate The Irede Foundation 6th anniversary. We remember how it all started – with a support group for parents and caregivers of child amputees. So far, though your help, Irede foundation provided 82 prosthetic limbs for child amputees. Is that not wonderful?

Our story of growth and restored hope is incomplete without YOU and we’re excited that you’ve helped us come this far.

As we look forward to a vibrant future and continue to push for awareness and empowerment for child amputees, hence, we have launched a campaign tagged #PowerOf6 from the 1st of February, 2018.

the same.
