As CT Fertility celebrated the clinic’s 20th anniversary in September of 2011, it announced an expansion of it’s social responsibility initiatives by pledging to donate $100 for every baby born in 2011 as a result of CT Fertility’s help. Now when the numbers are in, CT Fertility has awarded a total of $31,800, to the beneficiary organizations. “We are proud to have assisted in the conception and successful birth at least 318 babies in 2011,” said Dr. Michael Doyle, the clinic’s founder and medical director. “I could think of no better way to celebrate this achievement than to further the work of three of the organizations we have already supported in the past: Family Equality Council, USA for UNHCR and Mapendo New Horizons.”
CT Fertility and its medical director already have a long history of donating funds, food, and toys to families and children in need. “The three organizations benefiting from the new initiative were chosen due to their long commitment and support for the well being and safety of families of all kinds worldwide,” said Dr. Doyle, “reflecting the growing diversity of the parents we help, including clients from over 30 countries, couples and singles, straight and gay, and spanning a wide range of ages.”
“We are honored to be supported in such a meaningful way by an organization that helped create so many of the families we represent,” said Jennifer Chrisler, Family Equality’s Council’s executive director. “Family Equality Council is America’s foremost advocate for the one million LGBT parents raising two million children in the United States. We are working to ensure their full social and legal equality by building community, providing direct support to families and prospective parents, educating the American public, and securing inclusion in legislation.”
“USA for UNHCR is so thankful for the generous support from Dr. Doyle and the team at CT Fertility,” said Jo Sullivan – the organization’s COO. “Their unwavering commitment and generosity has contribute to our efforts to provides protection, shelter, medical care and other life-saving assistance to more than 36 million people worldwide, who have been forced to flee their homes due to war and persecution. The UN Refugee Agency – a two-time Nobel Peace Prize winner – has already helped an estimated 50 million refugees restart their lives. But countless people, many of them young children, are still being forced to flee for their safety every day. The commitment of people like Dr. Doyle allows us to continue to meet the needs of the world’s most vulnerable people, while building support and awareness for UNHCR’s life-saving relief programs.”
“I am pleased and excited for the support Mapendo New Horizons is receiving from Dr. Doyle and CT Fertility Associates,” said Dr. Kigabo Mbazumutima, one of Mapendo’s co-founders. “We thank Dr. Doyle for his continued support and faith in our mission to give help and hope to vulnerable survivors of physical, psychological, and social trauma in Africa by ensuring them easy access to health care, protection and security.”
