Sponsorship and connections
Our Core Objectives

To create awareness about chronic health issues with emphasis on cardiovascular health and share information and resources that is empowering, including basic health screening to promote early detection and thus increase chances of survival.
To facilitate support for treatment and care of cardiovascular health patients, including emotionaland physical support for family carers and others that may be impacted or affected.

The Patrick Iyere Foundation (PATIF) is set up in memory of Patrick Oriabure Iyere who lost a gallant battle to a heart disease but not without living his footprints in the sand and making notable impact, it is that impact we hope to carry on. For those who know Patrick well, he had a desire (passion) for helping people, he loved willingly, he gave generously and he served loyally. Patrick had no biases and he was known to reach out to all and was dearly loved by all.
