After eight years of supporting major autism campaign causes, funding education for the less priviledged, charitable visits to orphanages and prisons amongst others...

the Arise Monalisa Foundation has embarked on the Uterine Fibroid Project, this year, aimed at creating awareness, sensitizing the populace and sponsoring treatment of infected women across the country.

Speaking during the meeting which held on Wednesday 14th January 2015 at NAFDAC's headquarters in Abuja, Monalisa Chinda, multi-gifted actress and Founder of AMF said, "It is in giving our lives away that we find meaning... We appreciate NAFDAC for this strategic partnership as we look forward to propagating awareness of this fast spreading yet widely neglected uterine fibroid, which has become very common among women due to ignorance and stigmatization."
