Vlisco, a fabric design and manufacturing group with interests across Africa, has lauded the humanitarian contributions of Dr Yolanda George-David in combating child abuse and neglect in communities across Nigeria.

George-David  fondly addressed as Aunt Landa, trained as a  Neurosurgeon with her primary residency in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and began charitable works at  age 16. Her passion has since tilted towards getting both children and adults off the streets.

The human rights activist has continued to affect lives with  Aunt Landa’s Bethel Foundation which focuses on sexually abused teenagers.

Her   foundation   provides   counselling,   vocational   and   life   skills   training   to   over   25,000 teenagers   in  Nigeria, aside also being the   convener  of   Aunty   Landa   Market   Square,   another initiative to help empower and provide the basic needs of deprived Nigerians.

Her foundation  picks up prostitutes in dangerous areas for rehabilitation, rescues sexually abused   girls   and   boys,   gives   shelter   to   the   abandoned,   feeds   thousands   and   covers educational  and  surgical  fees.

According to a statement from Vlisco, “She is a philanthropist who has dedicated  her  time   to  helping people  suffering  from  all  forms of  abuse and her  work  is helping to shape lives and build a better world for many others”.

These selfless acts of giving life  and  hope  to  the  abused, oppressed and abandoned as well as other life-changing initiatives, according to the group, have helped redefine the purpose of over a million lives.

Vlisco has been designing and manufacturing unique fabrics loved by African women, who it says  been  the inspiration  behind  creativity  for  over 170  years. It is committed to empowering and inspiring women and girls  to   achieve   their   dreams.

Every   year,   Vlisco   celebrates   the achievements of women in Africa and the rest of the world.
