The Layi Erogbogbo Foundation is a sub-saharan African foundation with a focus on providing support, funding and visibility to endocrine diseases, with an intent to reduce mortality and incidence of such diseases.
We are poised to provide a veritable platform for advocacy about such endocrine diseases and support its management in affected members of the African population.
“I believe strongly that the foundation will help the less privileged in the society, it honours my father and I to give back to Africa” Goriola Erogbogbo | Founder
That the body's hormones, and the glands that produce them, make up the endocrine system. There are eight major glands, and their job is to regulate the body's metabolism, reproduction, growth and sleep?
Like the nervous system, the endocrine system is an information signal system. But rather than using neurons, it uses chemical messengers called hormones, each of which has its own unique function.
...that there are two types of glands in the body: exocrine and endocrine. Exocrine glands — which include the salivary glands, sweat glands and mammary glands — excrete their products through ducts. Endocrine glands, by contrast, release their products (hormones) without ducts, directly into the bloodstream.
Endocrine diseases have quietly ravaged lives of many; where survivors have suffered untoward social and economic impact due to stigmatization and hindrance to productivity.
STAGERING STATISTICS.Why we couldn't walk away.
According to http://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com, 15.13% of deaths recorded in Nigeria occur as a result of one endocrine disease or another. We know a lot of these deaths are avoidable.
SPONSOR A PATIENT.Be someone's hope.
Because we provide highly subsidized access to surgery and recovery, pre-surgery tests and medicine as well as drive preventive awareness programmes, extending a helping hand to us will be saving just another life.
