Endometriosis Support Group Nigeria (ESGN) will be holding a gala and fund raising dinner to round off the activities for the Endo awareness month.

The gala night, which will have the Wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, as the special guest of honour, will take place at the prestigious Civic Center on Ozumba Mbadiwe Road Victoria Island on April 9, 2016.

Preceding this grand finale event, ESGN had embarked on Endo awareness walks both in Abuja and Lagos on the February 18 and March 5 respectively. The walks attracted various support groups from the public and private sectors of the economy. Notably, in both walks were the Current Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria, Unouaku Ayandike, who’s per project is Endometriosis and a former Miss Tanzania, Millem Magese, who suffers from the condition.

Managing Director, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at Nordica Fertility Centre and trustee of ESGN, Dr. Abayomi Ajayi, apparently overwhelmed by the number of participants despite the rain during the Lagos Walk, said: “I didn’t imagine that people will walk in the rain and that gave me also a shot in the arm. But, it is still a drop in the ocean because women need to know how to manage the lifelong disorder endometriosis so that they can have quality life and enjoy their marriages

“It is a chronic disease where tissues that are normally found lining the womb (uterus) are found elsewhere in the body forming lesions. During menstrual flow, these lesions bleed in their locations leading to pain.
