Advocating for the research of the cause(s) of Fibroids is a cause OWF supports.  Fibroids are tumours prevalent in African and Caribbean women.  The main cause(s) of Fibroids is not yet known.

Too many women of origins mentioned above have suffered from this tumour.  Many have lost their lives to it and some have even lost their unborn babies to it.  It is amazing that the cause(s) of such a medical condition that can be so deadly is yet unknown.  Knowing the cause of a problem means it is half solved.  Knowing the cause(s) of Fibroids means it can be prevented.

OWF wants to join hands with institutes of medical research across Africa by way of raising funds for proper research into the cause(s) of Fibroids.
