Popular Humanitarian, Dr Yolanda N. George-David, also known as Aunt Landa and the Fair Chairman of the Market Square, Alibaba, have tagged the forthcoming edition of Aunt Landa Market Square as the “Intervention Edition”. The event is set to hold on Saturday, December 22nd, 2018 in Festac, Lagos.
Date: Saturday, December 22nd, 2018
Venue: CPM International FESTAC, Plot R opposite 209 Road, 2nd Ave, FESTAC Town, Lagos
This edition aims at intervening in the deplorable state of living among many Nigerians by providing job opportunities for hundreds through the vocational training made available at the market square.
Aunt Landa Market Square is the only market square in the world where the needy get to buy food, clothes, medicine and almost every other thing they need to survive for FREE at the price of the “Aunt Landa Love Currency (Zero Naira wrapped in God’s love).”
It has been revealed that the market will open to the public, and for the less privileged to shop for free as well as acquire free vocational training including hair styling, graphics designing, handcraft, music, catering, soap making and many more. Items like clothes, shoes, books, food items, fruits and everything needed to make the Christmas celebration worthwhile will be made available for free at the market square. A team of qualified medical doctors and nurses will also be available to provide free professional healthcare to attendees in need of medical attention.
Commenting on the purpose of the Market Square, Aunt Landa remarked; “This edition is nothing like we’ve ever done in the past. It is going to be the biggest market square ever! Intervening in the lives of people is not something to speak lightly about, neither is it something I can do all by myself, hence why a lot of my friends will be joining me to make sure that everyone who steps into that venue leaves with a smile and a clear definition of what love really means.”
She further revealed anyone can be part of the event, as it is her desire with the fair Chairman, Alibaba to see everyone excited in this season of love.
The previous market square tagged ‘Happiness Edition’, which took place in 2017 witnessed a massive crowd and attendance from some of the Foundation’s ambassadors, including comedy pioneer Alibaba, popular on-air personality Lolo 1, comedienne Lepacious Bose, Nikki Laoye and a host of others. It is expected that this edition will witness more faces.
