We all know of her. Tengku Puan Pahang, Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah who launched and continues to head the Tunku Azizah Fertility Fund (TAFF) has been the only hope for so many couples trying to concieve. She has personally raised money for her charity and paid for ivf for those who cannot afford it. And so many babies have been born. I know her dedication and perseverance as I also serve on the board of TAFF. Her only concern is for those condemned to a childless life. But the list of hopeful couples is long, and the money is never enough.
It is therefore fitting that the fertility profession honoured DYTM Tunku Azizah for her tireless efforts on behalf of the infertile here in Malaysia by bestowing her with an award during the Second National Reproductive Medicine Congress on 25th March 2011. It may not be much, but it shows the fertility profession’s high regard for her. The Deputy Minister of Health presented the award on behalf of the Minister.
