Ibidunni Ighodalo (July 1980 – 14 June 2020) was a former beauty queen, an event management expert, a philanthropist, and a co-pastor of Trinity House Church, in Lagos Nigeria.
In 2007, she married Pastor Pastor Ituah Ighodalo of Trinity House Church and both have two adopted children. Mrs Ighodalo was open about her own struggles to conceive, and her passion to help families that are suffering from infertility.
She once narrated in an interview how they struggled to have their own children, visited hospitals and were told by medical doctors that their only option is to seek treatment through assisted reproduction. Ibidun confessed that she had done IVF 11 times and it failed every time, and during the last attempt, she was pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, she lost the pregnancy after three months.
These experiences led her to establish Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation to create awareness on infertility and provide financial supports for families with such issues to do IVF.
Through the foundation, she has provided grants for couples to undergo IVF, and carried out awareness.
Mrs. Ibidunni died in the early hours of Sunday morning, 14 June 2020 in Port Harcourt, in the eastern Nigeria. Before her death, she was on assignment to set up a COVID-19 isolation centre for the River State government. Ibidunni died about a month before her 40th birthday. She died due to cardiac arrest.
