As a board member of the Erelu Adebayo Foundation and through her work at Ideal Eagle Hospital, Dr. Anita DaSilva-Ibru provides help and hope to the women of Lagos. ERAF is a non-governmental non-profit organization dedicated to providing an enabling environment and the skills necessary for women to become self-reliant. The organization targets women, particularly widows, in the areas that have been hit the hardest by unemployment and HIV infections. These women are often left to fend for themselves with no education and no money. ERAF and Dr. DaSilva-Ibru help by giving them the skills that they need to generate sustainable income for the care of their families. Very few people have the opportunity to have such a great impact on the lives of so many, and Dr. DaSilva-Ibru is one of those privileged few. She also works on women’s health issues as one of only two on-staff doctors at Ideal Eagle Hospital, ensuring that women in Lagos have access to much needed medical care.
