ERAF and Dr. Anita Kemi DaSilva-Ibru Work to Make Life Better for Many

Posted on August 15, 2012 by

Dr. DaSilva-Ibru is a member of the board of ERAF, a non-profit non-governmental organization that is dedicated to the rehabilitation and assistance of widows and orphans in Nigeria. The organization targets women and children in areas where the unemployment and HIV infection rates are highest, ensuring that the help that they provide reaches the people who need it the most. There are a number of different programs designed to improve the lives of women and vulnerable children, including an orphanage and feeding program. Hospice care is provided for the comfort and care of terminally ill HIV patients and scholarships are available which allow children to attend school. Along with these programs, widows and older teenage girls are given job skills training so that they can become self-supporting by generating a sustainable income on their own. Together, Dr. DaSilva-Ibru and ERAF are truly dedicated to making life better for as many women and children in Nigeria as possible.
