The Alternative Parenting Support Fund.
Fertility treatments are nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all!
Family GenerAid Foundation: a non-profit organization (with Charitable status by HMRC) that aims to help those who find it difficult to become parents without medical assistance.
Did you know….
Did you know that one in five people currently require fertility treatment to become parents. In 2016, more than 50,000 women underwent IVF treatment in the UK and each year that figure increases. Sadly, many more have a problem with it.
Our aim is to fight against this public stigma, to speak out and paint a clearer picture about alternative parenting, which most people know little about. We want to inspire intended parents by sharing the tough but empowering journeys of other alternative parents.
Reproductive and gestational techniques continue to be very expensive (IVF treatments cost at least £7,000 and surrogacy over £40,000) and receive little support from the state and NHS due to persistent public stigma. Even on this crowdfounder site you will find many projects with stories of people’s difficult journeys. Following the Chinese proverb: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime”, your support will help the Family GenerAid Foundation to create a fund, which will enable anyone who need medical assistance to become parents.
Our work will focus on:
a) The avocation of equal rights.
b) Improve the credibility of industry
c) Providing information about the medical treatments, laws and clinics
d) Sharing research and studies about issues of Medical Fertility
e) Partial financial contributions for families in stress and urgent need.
Your Contribution will enable us to:
i) Contribute for Family GenerAid Foundation running costs
ii) Provide the means for three main campaigns in London, Brighton and Manchester
iii) Provide marketing material such as banners, a tent, t-shirts, flyers and other relevant merchandise.
iv) Support Intended Parents that are financially in stress.
Make a difference and support our cause, because: Love makes a family!
